a fungus has attacked my fingerling potatoes.
on the advice of my friend (and farmer) jenny, i had to dig them up. give the other plants a chance at survival.
i must say, it was a bit painful digging up those five plants. i had such high (read: delicious) hopes for those little guys.
you can see the small potatoes that were forming. there were four to six on each plant. i hope this means that the rest of the plants are producing this many. i still have 41 potato plants. that's a lot of potatoes!
