This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

early baked potatoes

No photo. We ate them all. But they were yummy.

I baked two of my big early Russets that I dug yesterday. I think early potatoes are usually boiled for potato salad. But I can say that early Russets are fantastic! We topped them with Boursin cheese (gilding the lily!) and served with chiogga beets, fresh salad greens and bay scallops. Ahhh....

We had our first potatoes Thursday evening Pentland Javelin. I grew some of these last year and they were great, this year they seem floury in texture and popped their skins on boiling? Anyone potato experts out there got any hints or ideas?
