As big as Dad’s face too. He called them Caribou Russets. Is that Russet Burbank or Russet Norkotah? Or maybe Russet Noggin.

Potatoes are Maine’s Number One crop for a reason. The growing season usually has the right combination of sun and rain. (Maybe we had too much rain this summer.) And the Maine winters that prevent pests resulting in less need for pesticide use.

How about another look?
