Potato Harvest!!

This is by far the coolest thing I’ve ever planted. You know those potatoes that are always growing in the fridge? This it’s cousin. Yep, I stuck it in the dirt in this

A tide pod container!

I read up on growing potatoes and it said the time to reap was when the leaves started looking a little wilty. It started looking like that to me two weeks ago. But I curved my enthusiasm..or is it curb.

Anyway, today I could wait no more. Now I know how those little potatoes end up being a party to the harvest. They grow like a family – parents and children.

I put the plant back in another pot with a really big potato attached to the stem. Wonder if that’s the same one I planted…I don’t know if it’s done, but we shall see.

Well, these parents and children are going in the saucepan with olive oil, garlic and the few string beans that was ready.😊

A happy Saturday to you😊

Life

here’s to the days
when you looked a person in the eyes,
unblinking till they revealed themselves

when your nose was yours to pick
without shame or explanation

when you wore the cutest dress
with a diaper underneath without  consternation
here’s to those days!

Monsters

Over at dVerse Poets, Björn is talking monsters. We should come up with a poem with voice of the monster that scare us the most.

In my case, I can’t put a name on it because:-

I don’t believe in monsters
Never did
I don’t watch scary movies
Never did
They seep into my consciousness
Always did
They run around in my dreams
The monsters do
I don’t believe in monsters
Never did?
