Look. These things aren’t gonna plant themselves.
I must leave you early today so I can plant my potatoes. May 1st is traditionally the first day for putting in potatoes in these parts so I’m already behind.
For weeks I’ve been a walking filth bucket, what with the mini renovations going on and I need a day off from it. I need a day off from getting my hands dirty by spending the day getting my hands dirty. In a far more enjoyable way.
In case you’re interested in planting your own potatoes this year, here’s my post on How to Plant Potatoes.
This year I’m growing my favourite potato, the Kennebec, along with my other favourite, Red French Fingerlings. I’ll throw a few Russian Blues in for fun too. All of those cut into chunks and pan fried in a cast iron skillet with olive oil, butter and Herb de Provence and you have the makings of a delicious meal. Dinner’s at … 5 months from now.
Have a good weekend!
