Plantin' Potatoes

I started planting potatoes in early April.
I planted some regular ole' potatoes. Lots of em.
Better yet..
I planted some really freakin' cool potatoes. Knock ur socks off cool.
I ordered them from a seed catalog, which is where you can find the really cool stuff.
I planted "All Blue" and "All Red" potato varieties.
The skin is blue. BUT... the flesh is blue, too. Hence, the name All Blue.
Ditto with All Red.

Cool, huh?
Now I can make a red, white, and blue potato salad for a labor day party. Or if the new potatoes are ready by then, I can steal a few from under the plant and make one for 4th of July.
It takes little to please little ole me.
Beautiful!

  1. You don't have any of those for sale too, do you? I've been dying to serve Andy blue mashed potatoes, just for the reaction, ha ha!
