Holden planted a potato patch all by himself in June - he planted it, and has weeded and watered it himself all summer.  This morning we decided to dig into it and see what was going on.  Potatoes everywhere! This first harvest was only a small section of the patch.  He had one potato that was as big as a brick, but it was rotten on one side so we left it in the ground with the baby potatoes that were still growing.  These babies are now in a stock pot on the stove having been made into homemade clam chowder.
