Just back from Nantucket. A great summer for vacations; not too good for Gardening. I think I'll just call it a thicket.
has anyone grown purple potatoes? I did last year and spent considerable effort cultivating watering billing them only to be disappointed with a meager crop.I scrapped
darn buttons.I thought I scraped around harvesting every nugget but this year I had volunteers in each area as the year before. I totally ignored them....no water, no hilling little cultivating and I was surprised yesterday to harvest close to the same number of spuds as last year! now I don't know if I've discovered a perennial potato or it was a fluke because of our mild winter last year. I guess I'll find out next year.A friend says they are all over the soil surface in Peru and that leads me to think that they don't take to hilling as they didn't seem to produce there but under the natural soil surface .I don't recommend mashing these potatoes though they are tasty, purple mashed spuds are a bit off putting
I love gardening with my grandma, when i get the chance too because always busy and she loves it in the backyard and she spends everyday there
Diane, I just skimmed a book on perrenial vegetables that included potatoes.
