HOMEGROWN TATERS

taters-march.jpg

Justin harvested some (8lbs) potatoes today.  My mouth is watering just thinking of the potatoes slightly steamed with lemon butter and chives – oh boy!   The meals this week are going to reflect this recent harvest blessings.

This year we grew the taters from organic spuds brought at a local organic market.  Justin cut (in half) the potatoes and put them on a bed of wet sand until they sprouted “eyes.”  These sprouted eyes were then planted in a couple of whiskey barrels.

Here are some of this years growing results!

    Thank you for the pictures of the spuds, they look so yummy.
    I find it fasinating that you grew them in half barrells. I am planting the first of our autumn crop this weekend, so I am very curious! 🙂
    I have only ever grown spuds in hessian sacks or in the ground, I have never used containers as I was worried they would rot.
    Obviously not! You have my wheels turning…..
    Thanks
