Intended and UNintended Consequences

So this year I decided NOT to plant potatoes ... and what happened? I got potatoes anyway. It sure LOOKS like I planted them doesn't it. I'm naming this bed after the Tennessee Vols.

I notice that Liz at Pocket Farm has posted her invitation for this year's One Local Summer Challenge. I wrote and told her I am in for this summer. I invite you to visit and browse and look at last year's entries and recipes and see if you wouldn't like to sign up too.

I held off buying Barbara Kingsolver's new book Animal ,Vegetable, Miracle in the hopes I would get it as a brithday present and I DID! What a great read.

You're not alone, Leslie. I am the absolute worst potato grubber ever. I have tons of potatoes too where I don't want them. But that means I get to dig them up and eat them NOW yumsa. With scapes, of course.

I'm glad you're up for helping Liz! This should be a big year for OLS.

I loved Animal, Vegetable and Miracle. I planted potatoes for the first time this year, but they are in a container so I don't think I'll get any volunteers next year. I found you through the OLS links.

I got unintended potatoes this year too. Must be a trend. I can't wait to see how they taste. But I will need to grub them well this year so I can rotate! Your garden looks great!
