My Biggest One Yet!

Life here at the farm has continued to be full.  Stay tuned for a further explanation next week. 🙂

But for now I wanted to share what I found in my garden Tuesday!  The biggest potato I have ever grown!  This beauty weighted in at 1.5#s!

About Leanna Hale

Leanna Barth, born and raised in NC, first came to Polyface in July 2010 to attend one of the Intensive Discovery Seminars. She loved it so much that she applied for an internship position and was accepted for the 2011 season, after which she took the inventory/gardener position. Before coming to Polyface, she sold produce from her family’s market garden, along with homemade baked goods. This venture was mostly inspired by having read “You Can Farm” by Joel Salatin. Having always loved the outdoors, animals, and gardening Leanna is excited about this coming year, all that she will learn, and how the Lord will use this job later on in her life.

    Last year I harvested a 5.5 pound sweet potatoe! I am really curious to see what I will dig up this year.

    Wow! Some nice big potatoes being grown by both of you. I have yet to try potatoes but I know I should. It’s hard to find organic potatoes in the stores that last very long without sprouting.

    • That’s actually how I got my potato plants this year! 🙂 I popped an organic sprouting potato into the ground and it has gone crazy. I have never tried this before, but when I pull it up, I can let you know if it worked!

    This is our first year raising horseradish. The plant is huge. The leaves are 3 feet tall. Can’t wait to see what’s underneath.
