The potato beetles have turned out to be not such a problem. I don’t know if this is due to the regular application of scented mist (a lovely activity on a sunny afternoon) or just good luck, but I’ve only seen the very occasional striped bug. The main problem now is density. Not too long ago I realized those potato volunteers up front really had to go.

An early harvest feels like cheating the future, but it does bring a luxury of wee potatoes. The fork in the picture gives you a sense of scale.These went into a pan with a little bit of water and a large lump of butter. I wanted a special accompaniment for this one-time treat… something delicate, yet capable of cutting through the creamy richness. I settled on a salad of assorted herbs: basil, mint, arugula, oregano, celery leaf, dill fronds, chives, thyme blossoms.

    I bet they would have been good roasted, too.
