Potatoes from the Garden

When I was growing up the first meal from the garden was always creamed potatoes and peas.  It was a much anticipated meal and we would all eat until we were so full we couldn't stand to put anything else in our mouths.

Well, since I bought the acreage, I finally have a garden!!  I was too late to plant peas but I got potatoes in the ground.  So, I was hoping since the potato plants had grown quite large and bloomed nicely that there would be some small potatoes down there for me to dig out.  So I carefully dug out half of one plant and got these 8 small potatoes.  I am so happy to get these out and will be creaming them up tonight for supper.
