Green and Purple

PotatoLeaves

This is a good thing. I’ve got about 200 more potatoes to plant to finish the 400 feet of potato rows I’m growing this year. The purple potatoes I planted toward the end of March are shooting up, sending vibrant green leaves highlighted with purple veins and stems.

Potatoes are such beautiful plants. From the moment they spread their first leaves until they bloom, potato plants are gorgeous.
