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.😊
The light of morning has been seized upon by a mighty thunder storm. Charcoal gray clouds now fill the sky.
They soon give way to ploppy raindrops and pea sized hail. The leaves of the hydrangea is in a tremulous dance. Hail pings off the metal back stairs, and the glass door. Those landing on the stairs are immediately washed into puddles by the vigorous downpour. This, results in their immediate drowning.
The limbs of the tall lopsided pine are in an uproar. As are all the hefty bushes in the garden. They are locked in a lively jig with this wild wind.
