Weed It and Reap!

While weeding the overgrown squash patch in preparation for the Picnic Operetta, I unearthed 3/4 of a bushel of beautiful volunteer potatoes!

Usually I pull out volunteers because once when I left a patch of volunteer squashes I got a bumper crop of squash bugs. But for some reason I left them and forgot they were there - you didn't really notice the plants once the weeds grew so healthily.  These potatoes are large and perfect and I never saw a potato bug all summer.  There is still half a squash patch to weed, so I may even get a few more potatoes.
