What Yesterday's Picture Really Was

Yesterday, on Wordless Wednesday, I posted a picture to see what y'all would think it was. There were some interesting guesses. What it really was was 1 egg and 2 small potatoes. I put the egg in to give you an idea of what size the potatoes were. Here is a picture of the potatoes fried up with some okra. They were mighty tasty. I am hoping for more!


My cousin told me after the plants started dying I could pull out some of the smaller ones to fry up. So, that is what I did, but I only dug up 2. I am hoping if I leave them alone for a couple more weeks, that they might grow some more. This is my first time growing them, but that is what I've read and heard. I really hope it's true and that I'll get a nice harvest of bigger potatoes.

Those little potatoes are called "new potatoes". I love them. I wrote a post about preparing them awhile ago. If you would like to read it, go to my site, click on the Country Home tab and then go to the recipe page. I look forward to them every year.

My Dad always grew a lot of potatoes and he would store them in our basement (in New England)--but I never watched how he did anything!!! Man, we should teach our kids what we learn!!

yum, those look really good. I plan (no matter where we are) next year to grow some. Your blog inspired me. Good luck on the others growing.

My potato plants are good and dead and I, too, am waiting a bit to dig them up. I can't wait to get all those fresh taters! We planted 5 different varieties. I've also read that you are supposed to let them "cure" for a bit in the "field" before you bring them in to get a thicker skin for better storage. Of course, that assumed they last long enough to actually store & we don't eat them all up right away!!!
