I found some All Blue Potato seed potatoes at the store Friday, my dad used to grow them and he loved them!

I don't remember getting to eat them, but I'm told they make colorful salads, mashed potatoes etc.

I purchased 3 lbs of blue

I purchased 3 lbs of blue seed potatoes too. They are labeled "Mother-in-Law potatoes. We have never had them before. I figured the kids would get a kick out of them and I try to do stuff that will keep them interested in gardening.

Normally they would have been in the ground 2 weeks or more by now but the weather is not being cooperative so they are sitting in a bag in the kitchen.

Just about time here!

It's just about time around here to plant potatoes, lots of people around here say that Good Friday is a good time to plant them.

I have Purple Viking Potatoes saved down in the crawl space, and am hoping they will be fit to use for seed potatoes, they were already getting too soft to eat when I put them down there quite some time ago!
