harvesting potatoes

Last Saturday I dug up our potatoes. I knew that the garden doesn't get enough sunshine really for crops like potatoes and beans but still, I was a bit disappointed in how few potatoes we got for all the vines we had. But we did get a pile of purple potatoes.
And lots of stones. And with these potatoes, their colour closely matches stones. This was our first year eating home grown potatoes and while these ones are pretty, they didn't taste great roasted.
For their second outing, I tried potato salad - and I'm sorry to say they were still not very potato tasting, although the potato salad was a very fun colour!
