New Potatoes!

About February, as we are dragging some dusty potatoes out of our root cellar, we start thinking about early Summer's baby potatoes. And they are here! We had our first dig for this weekend's Farmers' Markets and they are lovely! There is just nothing like a new potato. They taste fresh and alive, with a texture as smooth as silk. In this slow growing season, ours are still quite small, a bit of an extravagance to wreck so many plants for so little product. As Farmer Boy likes to say: when you sell things for pennies a pound, you'd like them to be a little bigger. But we just couldn't wait any longer!
