Garden Stuff

Back in June I told you how The Husband planted a couple of potatoes from the fridge just to see what would happen. They were planted in a couple of stacked plastic buckets one of which he’d removed the bottom. The other day they were ready to harvest so he put a tarp on the lawn and dumped the buckets out. This is the harvest. I used the potatoes on the left in a beef stew today and they were delicious. The Husband is planning a much larger system to grow potatoes next year. They (along with the sweet 100 tomatoes and the hot peppers) were a complete success. The other things were more of varying degrees of failure.

After dinner tonight we walked through the local conservation area. The garden is reaching the end of its life. There are still flowers blooming but the vegetables are done.

  5. Nothing like random acts of nutrition! My guess is the plastic buckets kept out potato loving critters, and I like the multiplier affect from just two potatoes!
