My Version of Winning the Lottery

July 31st, 2009 at 12:53 am

Yes, I won the Potato Lottery!

Potatoes! Alleluia! I am blessed!

I actually returned the potato seed to the nursery because they were shriveled and wrinkled. I planted them, but then became disgusted at their black, blotchy appearance and convinced myself they were no good.

I was so surprised when healthy green shots sprung up two weeks later.

Then I endured three consecutive weeks of nightly slug picking. They decimated my once healthy plants despite my best efforts.

The tops began dying back a few weeks ago, and because they never had a chance to flower before the slugs took over, i figured there'd be no tubers.

WRONG. I harvested half my crop, only becus mosquitoes were biting. I dug up 6 lbs. of big, beautiful, red potatoes!!!!

I hereby declare tomorrow Potato Salad Day!
