With the arrival of spring we are in full gear here at 47 Daisies. Seed potatoes have arrived!! We order our seed potatoes from a farm in Colorado. They have to drive the southern shipments to Arizona to ship them in order to not subject them to Colorado freezing winter temps.
Five varieties are going in this year and it should be pretty exciting.....Again this year we went with red, white and blue potatoes so all the colors of the rainbow (almost!) are going in the ground. I put my foot down on the blue potatoes though. Last year Harmony insisted that we could grow blue potatoes but they needed to be white on the inside (thus purple viking went into the ground). This year we went ALL BLUE!! These potatoes are blue from the skin to center!! How awesome it will be to have blue mashed potatoes without adding food coloring!! We are scheduled to plant the seed potatoes in the middle of February and we can expect to start harvesting around the middle of April. .....175 pounds of seed potatoes all certified organic and naturally grown!!!!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
