Garden Mysteries

OK, I have absolutely no idea how this happened

I’m pretty sure I planted only white potatoes, and I surely would have noticed if the seed potato had been that pink. And that bed hasn’t been used for potatoes all the time I’ve had it, so it’s not a volunteer.

Still, they scrub up pretty nicely, so I’m not complaining

… although as I went to get the hose to clean them off I realised that all that rain and then going gallivanting about in London meant I was definitely behind with the weeding

There will have to be some serious gardening done tomorrow, I think

    Pretending to be beetroot in the hope you won’t eat them?

    The seed potato(es) would have been quite pale in comparison to those, little more than a pinkish-white.
    They look okay, and I would say that they’re Desiree which is a main crop variety that I grow but have yet to lift any. xx

    I’ve got that in my garden too: it has taken to climbing up the courgettes and it’s pretty fast: I’m wondering if the reduction in slugs is because that stuff captures and eats them.

    The potatoe equivalent of suntan perhaps? (Or perhaps not.)

    Oh god, my spelling doesn’t improve! Sorry about that.

    I normally don’t get too excited about spuds (see, I avoided that whole spelling issue) but those do look rather nice.
    Just as well you’re back in the garden and not peddling around London. Not a good place for bikes it seems. Will it ever get any better, or must more poor hapless souls be run over by monster buses?

    Potatoes are always good for a surpise eh? Mine this year were all teensy. Don’t understand it at all.

    Well, they taste like potatoes anyway.
