potato harvest!

I've always wanted to be good at gardening and vegetable-growing in particular. Apartment-living doesn't make this aspiration easy to come by, but I'm doing my best. Here are the results of my first attempt at growing potatoes from one that sprouted in our pantry [with some coaching & tips from my father-in-law]:

the above-ground plant parts have to look all dead like this
before it's time to dig up the potatoes
they aren't shaped perfectly like the ones in the super-market
potatoes still attached to the plant
my yield!
looks a little more impressive in a pot
me admiring the fruits of my labor
the tiniest tater of them all

Next year I think won't plant as many potatoes in the same pot, and I'll start them earlier in the season, so they'll have plenty of time and room to grow!


Thanks for your comment! I love hearing from you.
