Purple Potatoes

Awhile ago I picked up some purple potatoes at our local market. They sat in my cupboard for a bit too long, and had unusual spidery-looking eyes all over them.

The insides were marbled and definitely purple. After they were cooked and mashed they turned greyish-blue, but otherwise tasted like normal mashed potatoes. Since the eyes looked so cool, I thought I'd cut one end off and plant it.

Now I wish I'd planted more!

It's growing fantastically in the front yard. Later I'll have my own purple potatoes =)

Moral of the story: Don't throw away good-looking potatoes that are already starting to grow.

Also, my mom and brothers brought us some little blueberry plants. I'm looking forward to harvesting our own blueberries!
