Potato Patch Progress
My potatoes are outshining everything in the garden. I would like to think that I have finally inherited my mother’s green thumb, but I suspect it has more to do with the fact that it has been an incredibly wet summer. An Irish summer almost, the showers have made my plants look gorgeous, and ironically it is the Irish Kerr’s Pink that are doing best. They are all flowering now, which means we could harvest some of them for small baby potatoes but I am going to wait for bigger potatoes.
Some of you might notice that potatoes plants and flowers look a lot like tomato plants. The flowers are white, not yellow, but goodness they do look similar. They are after all in the same nightshade family, interesting no?
