potato harvest

And what's in the mud? Well in our backyard, potatoes are in the mud. And tonight when i went to make stew and found that i'd forgotten to buy potatoes, b. suggested that i go out and dig up one of the plants in the garden. Okay. Rootling around in the dirt OUTSIDE the house. That's almost like a house project. It's on the house property. I need a tool to do it. Close enough!

So check it out. All those potatoes came from one plant. It was like an easter egg hunt with dirt and tools! In other words, AWESOME.

And we have 2 more plants that we put in for the winter crop. So the fun hasnt ended.

Ok. Clearly i need this bullsh*t rain to stop so i can get on a real project. Pity me.

There are few cooler things than going out in your backyard and digging up dinner. I'm sure Dixie would agree.

I can't wait for the ground to dry out enough up here to till. We have just enough of our spuds left from last year to plant in the ground this time. Rain go away is right! Gyaaaaaaaaa!

Spuds! Yay. You are so lucky. We only root around and find spuds in Aug/Sept. Hope they were delish!

We want to plant potatoes in our newly formed veggie garden, but aren't we too late to do that? Somewhere in my memory bank of info-to-put-away-for-when-I-retire is something about planting potatoes in a particular month. Which month would that be, please? I'm VERY impressed by all those spuds coming from one plant!...and I do love the idea of an Easter egg hunt!
