The Rows are Plentiful, Mr. Potato Head

You might notice that the stems of this potato plant are blue instead of green like most traditional potato plants. This is a potato plant from the bag of blue potatoes that I planted. They were the last out of the 3 different varieties of potatoes that are growing in my back yard this year.

This is the first potato blossom of the season. It comes from the first batch of potatoes that were planted. They were from a bag of Russet potatoes in my cupboard that went to seed. There is so much beauty in the grow cycle of all living things and in this beautiful blossom.

I'm sure things are as active underneath the soil as it is above the soil. These potato plants are certainly coming a long way.
