Produce that keeps on giving
I gathered the girls and we went out to dig this row up. I have another row of them but they are smaller and I don't see any peeking out from the soil. My kids grumbled about how they didn't want to help me but because i'm there mother I have the last word. One perk of being a parent that I love. Once the plants were pulled and they saw that there were potatoes, they started to dig and help out. While we were digging them out our neighbors came in the garden and helped out as well. Kids love this kind of stuff. How cool are potatoes? They grow under the dirt! My kids just love that fact. So here is what we unearthed.
This is the reason I love potatoes and will spend the extra to get organic ones. If you cannot use them up fast enough, plant them. Its the gift that keeps on giving. It really is a good money stretcher vegetable.
What do you think I will make for dinner tonight? Mashed potatoes of course! Yukon Gold is the best because you don't have to peel them. Just cut them up and boil them. Gotta love that.
