I like the idea of this diptych ... you see the farmer digging the potatoes that become the finished product. But aside from the kind of strawish color, I am not sure how they tie together visually. I also know that the farmer photo is very right-side heavy, so I decided to put that one on the left so that your eye would continue on to the potato salad.

Weather has not been cooperative, but this is the weekend the summer things go in. Here, Risa is adding hills of Helda green beans and scarlet runners to the pea bed. There are also favas, kale, bok choi, lettuces, and red and green cabbage in this bed -- polyculture.
