We are new-ish to gardening and decided that this year we would add potatoes to our repertoire.
So we quartered some from the pantry that had 'eyes' on them and planted.
Well my husband being not too knowledgable about planting...planted a summer squash right next to the potatoes.
The squash went like wild fire and basically smothered the poor potato plants.
We thought there were no potatoes that could have survived.
So last night we went out to dig out the now defunct summer squash....
and my hubby decided to pull the potatoes too.
Well wouldn't you know it.
Potatoes...lots of them.
Well lots for us.
So we made potato chips first and the rest? maybe American fries for dinner?
I'm not sure but I am super excited that we got potatoes.
It was a treat to see my girls digging for them.
Next year we are planting them again, away from the Squash.
And this monster is from my heirloom tomato plants...
We have tomatoes coming out of our ears this year
guess I will have to try canning this year after all.....
