Dill and new potatoes. One of my favorite things.
We buy organic seed potatoes and grow them in compost. If potato beetles show up we hand pick them off and feed them to the chickens. There are lots of birds in the potato plants this year too, and it appears that they are taking the potato beetles (they sit on top of leaves, easy to see) and eating them.

When it is time to cook our fingerlings, we usually boil them. Or bake in the oven with a chicken. Then a little salt, pepper and fresh dill. Skins on, because they are tasty and pretty clean. No need to peel, just cook them up and eat them!
