No Small Potato

Potatoes grow fast and huge, here. The frame can hardly contain them.

A couple of days back I went out in the morning to find one third of the potatoes flattened. Raccoon? Deer? Owl flapping its wings? Coyote maybe? Don't know, but I had to string them up to get them off the surrounding plant beds.

We hardly, if ever, consider potato flowers. These are light, light purple. Most of the others are white. They're nice to see, and appreciate, floating above the dense bed of green.


  1. Definitely gonna try potatoes next year - those -plants look great!

    1. Thank you! So easy to grow if you don't have potato beetles (which we don't yet and if you haven't grown potatoes you may not as well).
