New Potatoes

Dug up some Russian Blue new potatoes this morning for breakfast. The dark purplish skins made them difficult to find in the soil, but aren't they gorgeous?!  Can't wait to tuck into these.

The potato interiors were equally exciting to behold. I am doubling up my order of these next season.

As I was composting the the leaves of the plant I noticed a bonus... potato berries hanging from the vines.

Each berry has a pile of little seeds inside. The berries are slightly oblong, unlike the very round Yukon Gold potato berries. I'm going to open them and dry the tiny seeds inside. These are keepers.
