On the 11th of June we dug up our first potatoes of the year! It took three plants to give enough potatoes for us to enjoy a fulfilling dinner. The traditional Finnish first potato meal is very simple: boiled potatoes, dill and butter. Delicious!

Watch the video to see me dig them from our garden!
