To the Garden & Back
Just returned to the lodge after a quick trip back to the cabin. We had fresh snow on the higher peaks again last week, and cool, wet weather down here, but today the sun is out again and it is warming up. I dug the first potatoes of the season and was really surprised at the number of great looking potatoes from each hill. I lifted four plants, one each of Red Norland, Yukon Gold, Red Pontiac, and Netted gems. The photo above shows the result. I took these and some other vegetables up the highway today to my friends at the Todagin Creek Guest Ranch. The garden is doing exceptionally well this year. There is going to be far more produce than I will be able to consume myself.
