Potato towers: Harvesting new potatoes

July 5 — The plants are dying back, and while the potatoes aren’t totally done forming, I’m curious to see if there are any new potatoes – meaning potatoes with flakier skin.

I reached my hand in the straw and sure enough, I pulled out some ‘Rose Finn’ potatoes. They won’t store as long since their skins weren’t allowed to harden for a few more weeks, but they’ll taste extra delicious.
