Taters in Winter? Ridiculous!
I had some purple potatoes going to seed, so rather than throw them out, I planted them, at New Year's! Fortunately, I had a big bin and a back corner in the greenhouse to plant 'em in.
They're growing! And growing well. I added another four inches of dirt and compost.
If I'm not careful, I'll have fresh purple potatoes for Easter. Won't that be interesting potato salad at the family gathering?
(Comment: Purple taters are an experiment. We like 'em. We think they taste different, more flavorful, maybe. And they certainly are striking! We're going to do this again!)
