I finished harvesting my potatoes today.
This is my second harvest. The first one was the same size.
Yes, I can hold them all in one hand.
But remember that I just stuck 4 sprouting potatoes from my pantry in the ground. Potatoes I would normally toss in the garbage. I was rewarded with two meals (if I don't invite guests) of delicious potatoes.
I am thrilled and amazed that potatoes destined for the garbage can produce these fresh, nearly unblemished beauties!
I saved this post in draft and went to check out a few blogs (I am way behind). While surfing I am munching on a freshly made no bake cookie. As I read our friend, Pea's post for today, I nearly spit out my cookie laughing over my posting of this piddly little potato harvest. Pea posted about her potato harvest, too. Just look at it! My, my. I would be a sad little farm woman, wouldn't I? If there is ever a major food shortage, I want to live next to Pea.
While surfing I discovered this interesting site which lists expiration dates of different foods.
For instance, did you know that honey NEVER goes bad? You can keep it on the pantry shelf forever.
I was very interested to find that bottled salad dressing last months beyond the sell by date on the bottle. I couldn't wait to enlighten DH. He insists that I throw the bottle away as soon as it's beyond that date. I always tell him that he's a little overzealous in throwing away food. It didn't hurt to show him a little proof. :)
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
