Home Grown

Anyone remember this post?

Embee decided that the potatoes would be ready, I was less confident not that I know anything about gardening! I just like the end product!

So this morning this is what happened...... I see a few little red objects among the soil....
...clearly some were still quite small so we probably should have left them longer.........anyway we have enough here to make a meal..........they look even better now I've washed them..........only problem is I can't tell you the variety because embee kept the wrong labels. I will be cooking them for dinner so fingers crossed they taste good.

I bet they taste wonderful! Enjoy.

Awesome! I wonder if i could grow them here in S. Florida? Probably not.

Hope you enjoy them! Veggies always seem to taste better when they're ones you've grown yourself.

I am soooo happy for you! I'm sure they'll be delicious.
Our potato plants were successful, but not as lush as yours. (And we kind of forgot what type we planted, too.)

Oh cool, you grew them in a pot. Maybe we should try that.

sam we had them with butter and parsley from the garden

hi windywoo50 nice to see you

john you are a hoot, they were certainly beetroot colour

grannymar they were delicious

swampangel not sure you would need to water them quite a lot the rain does it for us!

steffi they were a very bright colour

CC these were so light and fluffy everyone except Ben seemed to like them!

molly it's very easy we have two more tubs maturing and will definitely do it again next year

I love red potatoes, but I never grown any. I bet you wish you had more

I'm glad they turned out well for you :)

My bet is they will taste good. I love new red potatoes.

Have a good week.

Looking at the skin, I would say they are Desiree or Pontiacs. D's would be more yellow inside and the others more watery white.

Either way they look lovely! Great job. I believe with spuds they are supposed to die off a bit more before digging them up. But I would have been like you and dug them up to check! LOL!

How satisfying to grow your own food... Mmmmmmm mmmmmmm little new potatoes with butter and parsley..

karisma they are definitely not desiree but could well be pontiacs. Also you are right about the dying off we were a bit too eager for a tasting!

The suggestion from a couple here is that they are Maris Piper and I have to say that name does ring a bell. Love.

they're beautiful!

they'd make a lovely cold salad, with green beans, cherry tomatoes, and a drizzle of basil-olive oil-white wine vinegar.

(or just boiled with butter and salt.)

I have never thought of growing potatoes in a pot. Good idea.

Yum! I love fresh potatoes. They are so good.

Thanks for the reminder - I need to go check mine!

Ah … yummy! Little red potatoes (particularly home grown) are my favorites! Yours look lovely ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
