we struck GOLD

Oh, glory be!  After months of remembering to water and fuss and crossing of fingers…….the time had come to get a little dirt under those finger nails.

The great backyard potato harvest of 2017.

We struck Gold! Yukon Gold that is.

I will let pictures tell the story.  I am off to start the water to boiling.  I foresee glorious mashed taters on my dinner plate tonight!!!



Just a little potato humor.  You’re welcome.  🙂

On with the show!




I predict a whole bunch of crispy, wonderful home-made potato chips in our future!

How did your garden grow this year?

Chat soon.

  1. I have an herb garden with rosemary, basil, lavender, and parsley. Michelene is the real gardener. She has many tomatoes planted. For other veges and fruit, we live close to two farms and we love to support them. What are you going to make with all those spuds? 🙂

    1. You KNOW I am going to make one of my top 3 favorite foods…………MASHED potatoes.
      Then, Mr. Right has claimed some for home made potato chips.
      Then crashed potatoes and potato leek soup and potato pancakes…did I mention I have a huge, thick, wonderful cookbook called: “Potatoes”!!!!!

      Still smiling. Thanks for stopping by.
