First, earlier this week I harvested a boat load of lettuce, but I forgot to take a picture of it until the man was half way done with his salad:
That was awesome. Yesterday I harvested a motherload of rosemary that was shading out my zucchini plants and a few zucchini babies that I'm fairly positive didn't get pollinated since I've yet to see a bee and there were not male flowers opened at the time. I used some of both in our eggs this morning. Yummy.Now for the awesomest part. Last year I drooled over everyone's potato harvest pictures. I wanted to try to grow potatoes so badly, but I didn't have any garden space to do so, but I did have a bunch of empty pots so I decided to try to do it in pots. I was skeptical since I know nothing about potatoes or when to harvest them. I read in a book this morning that when your potato plant flowers, you most likely have new potato sized tubers under there. Well, one of my plants had flowered....a long time ago, and I had potato-tomatoes!!!!
Did that mean I had potatoes underneath? I decided to give it a shot and dug down... and down...and down and found nothing.
Frustrated with the whole thing, I ripped up the entire plant and LOOK!!!! Them' potatoes!
I cooked them up for lunch with carrots, garlic and rosemary from the garden. I'm ashamed to say I didn't share it and ate the whole plate myself, but boy was it just decadent.
There was nothing like it in the world. Hop on by Daphne's to see what everyone else is harvesting!
