First Meal of New Potatoes in 2009

      Okay, I know! I know! I know! I posted a piece on "First Meal of New Potatoes Today" on Aug. 9 2009. But this is the first meal of new potatoes in 2010, so that's special too and deserves it's own post.

      So let's face it, I really like potatoes...especially new potatoes. Potatoes boiled, fried, deep fried, baked, scalloped, hash brown ...I love them all. I eat all the other starches like rice and pasta but I prefer the potato.

      My vegetable garden is very small so I only have room for a few hills of potatoes. My garden is also messy as you can see a gooseberry bush, volunteer sunflowers, lettuce, a clump of Home Farm Girl's flowers and the compost box. A bit messy but the potatoes are great!

     I was driven to distraction when Linda announced that she was having new potatoes! If she was closer I would have had to raid her potato patch.

     So I hope all people enjoy their new potatoes as much as I do.
