tiny purple potatoes

So the second best reason for blowing off work on the house (getting married holds the no. 1 spot, mindy & teague) is having company. We had beth's mom with us for the weekend so we took the opportunity to lay off the projects and sit around. Oh sittin around. It feels so....wierd.

Slacking has wound us up for next weekend though and it looks like we might finally get started on the double-hung windows as the window book recommended by Jeanne finally arrived (amazon just lost its mind over that one and became incapable of getting the thing in the mail).

In vegetable news, beth pulled out a couple of the potato plants that were crowding my tomatoes (NOTHING may threaten the tomatoes, oh no, nothing) and they had the cutest little spuds attached. Yes, they are purple. Yes, that is a bottlecap. The potatoes are small. Small. So now i'm all excited for the rest of them to grow and get big. Big. I have great plans for purple french fries. Dude, that's just kewl.

You're right, Jess. They are blue potatoes. But darn it all if they don't come out purple. The plant itself is also very pretty with periwinkle flowers.

But all must be sacrificed for tomatoes. All.

What can I say? You are your dad's daughter! No sacrifice too big for tomatoes....LOTS of tomatoes!

I can't wait to munch on 'em either. Haven't pulled any of mine yet. I posted pics of the plants a couple of days ago on my blog if anyone is interested.
