I have noticed one of my potato plants not doing very well. Something was eating it. I would check it every morning and night. I killed a couple of slugs that were near but it was still getting worse. So I decided to pull it up today. As I was moving dirt away I found three very big snails hiding. My chickens thought they were yummy!
Because I didn't do a very good job of remembering which kind of potato I planted where, I had to pull the plant out to see what kind of potatoes I would be digging up. Well they are the purple potatoes. Did you know it is hard to find deep purple potatoes in black rich soil? I had to be careful I didn't miss any.
This is what I dug up. They look like dirty rocks, don't they?
I washed one up so I could see it better. This is the first time I have grown this kind of potato.
Did you guess the inside would be purple, too? I know they say that you aren't suppose to eat raw potatoes. Well I wanted to see what this purple potato would taste like. Guess what, it taste like any other potato. Only this one made my tongue purple.
