And what's this? A tiny new Red Norland potato. I wonder if there're any others out there. Unfortunately my potatoes also are not doing too well. The plants look sick and there are no blossoms. Last year was my first real try at potatoes and the plants were hale and hearty and bloomed like crazy. Time will tell if I get anything at all.
My green beans are late! They are blooming profusely and I expect them to com in next week, which is a shame because I won't be here next week. I am going to Haiti on a mission trip next Saturday. My husband will man the garden for me, so he will likely be picking the first batch of beans. For some reason, after I planted my bean patch, they all sprouted, then disappeared. Birds, maybe? I don't know, but out of the whole large patch only ten plants remained, so I had to re-plant the entire thing a second time. The second time they made it, which is a good thing, because green beans is my other "never-fail" crop. Gardening does keep you humble, doesn't it? Happy harvest everybody!
