Early yesterday morning I headed out to the back field to dig up some new potatoes for dinner. The fields were gorgeous with the sun sparkling on the dewy plants. The potato plants are tall, healthy and very green. They are in full flower which means they are growing tubers that are maturing into potatoes. You can see all the new potatoes attached to the plant I pulled up, as well as the seed potato which is the dark brown potato in the middle of the cluster. For all kinds of interesting facts about potatoes you can visit “Spud Smarts – About Potatoes.”
