We had a number of first harvests this week. We harvested the entire crop of Red Norland potatoes. It was disappointing, about a third of what we got last year. The plants started out strong, but weakened as we got into summer. Weak plants equals small harvests. At the same time we picked the first Fortex pole beans, which I planted adjacent to the potato rows. These also were a disappointment; this time because rabbits ate the plants, and they are only starting to recover.
