This was a good year for potatoes in my garden. They relished the cooler conditions and moist soil in the early part of the year. When the tops die back you can harvest the potatoes. German fingerlings are thick-skinned with buttery flesh and make the best summer potato salad.

The Garden Path Potato Salad
2 lbs new potatoes, cooked ‘til just tender, cooled and chopped
1 sweet white onion, minced
1 small cucumber, chopped
2 dill pickles, sliced (or 1 tsp. capers)
2 hardboiled eggs
2 tsp. dill
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
Toss all together and chill in refrigerator.
