And the Lord Spaketh: "Go forward and make french fries."


It's potato porn time!

Here it is--week five:


Here's what it looked like last week:


Um, yeah. I'm starting to get a little frightened.

I had to take a picture of it from the ground looking up at our landing.


I told Dr. Mad Scientist that it wouldn't surprise me if it sprouted a head and started spouting prophecies. Hey, if Moses had the burning bush, surely a potato prophet wouldn't be unheard of, right?

Since we're on the subject of gardenly delights, I have cast on for Tomato!


I think the sweater will turn out better than the plants. The plants aren't meant for containers. I'm not sure if anything will happen with them. But hey, it's fun to experiment!

Finally to wrap things up, just a quick reminder that it's not too late to enter my yarny contest. All in the name of Kootchies!

Remember, this month you could win this luxurious qiviut generously donated by my Youngest Younger Brother, Friend of Kootchies.

A tree may grow in Brooklyn, but a potato grows in Jersey!

Ok, I'm waiting for you to send me the notice that I'm the randomly generated winner of that qiviut.

I'll take a cupcake, too, if there are any left.

Potatoe plant is happy! And I bought yarn for Tomato too! But Coachella was calling more strongly for some reason, so that's what's happening right now.....What yarn is that for your Tomatoe?

i think that T took some photos of my awesome hippie garden- I have over 100 tomatoes now....but the gardening community hates me beacause I dont weed.
Screw them, I have gorgeous organic produce man....I miss container gardening. I think next year,I will do it again.I cannot take the pressure of other gardeners. they just dont jive with my liberal self.
Good luck with the potato.

I checked and I'm pretty sure God would want you to have fabulous french fries.
And a tomato.

the July contest...i will be there!

as for pot gardening (heh. heh. hehehe) yeah, you can grow them in pots. we do tomatoes and bell peppers in pots every year, as well as pea pods too. they just need bigger containers. hmmm

Tomatoes are great for containers. Potatoes work well in containers, too. I've grown them in storage bins, and currently I'm growing them in tires.

Also, check out this Homemade Tomato Bag. They also have ones you can buy at any garden center. My friend has one and it's totally cool for growing tomatoes.

Unless it starts singing, "Feed me, Bezzziiieee," you should be safe. ;)

I can't get in to see Dr. Va-jay-jay this month. Waaaahhh! Ah well, I never win anything anyway (yeah, yeah, cry me a river).

Veggies can grow in containers just fine. My grandma has been doing it for years and always gets a few nice looking tomatoes out of her pots.

Your garden looks really good! To get more from that potato you need to put some mulch around the bottom stem and then add more as it grows. Learned that from that ADN gardener. Love, Mom

Oh man, you're going to have so many potatoes you're not going to know what to do with them!

I have to assume that nikbudnik is a relative. (I think I remember you saying something about a budnik) Funniest comment so far. lol. Be sure to let him know that carol was talking about a knitted top, not a music festival! LOL. Frickin awesome.

Alright, I forgot what the post was about because of that comment. lol.

Mmmmh! Nothing beats fresh potatoes. Let's see what you harvest later on.

What yarn are you using for your Tomato? It looks like SWTC Bamboo in Lilac, the exact same yarn I cast on for for my first ever sweater knit as an adult.
