I returned from Ireland to my potted plant of potatoes.  A second crop.  Sitting in the bay window, with so much sun, the greenery was still vibrant but I figured it was time to look beneath the soil.  Eventually the little potatoes were gently scrubbed and tossed into a frying pan with some meat drippings.  After a fork full, my dinner companion uttered, “Mmmmm. Creamy.” Next year, I’m going to work with a bigger pot. 😉 Have a good Friday.

Earlier this spring, I found a little potato sprouting in the pantry drawer.  I cut up the potato and planted the sprouts in a big green pot on a table next to several tall windows.  Lots of light shines down even through the widening leaves of the oak tree outside.  No high hopes for a great potato crop but I did have a wee hope to see just a bit of green poke through the soil.  Guess what?

I have in my midst what one friend described as “a lovely green monster” that any moment now is going to shout, “Feed me!”

Are actual potatoes growing beneath the dark soil? Will I grow my first potato crop ever in a big green pot sitting on a sun-drenched table in Somerville, MA?  Stay tuned, my friends, stay tuned.  😉

“It’s just leftovers,” he said.  “Leftover mashed potatoes and a single egg.  The egg has a little fresh thyme mixed in but really, how much more simple can you get?”  Indeed. 😉

An unexpected find in the pantry drawer this morning.  Tucked in the back, a small red onion and a few small potatoes had sprouted.  My father used to treasure such finds at this time of year.

He’d claim them from my mother and save to plant in the vegetable garden.  I consulted with my brothers who paid much better attention that I to the details of planting vegetables that have gone to seed.

I’m going to tuck these sprouts into some dirt in some big pots I have in the house.  I don’t expect I’ll get much of a crop but it will be fun to see what does happen.  Stay tuned … 😉
