When Potatoes Bloom


It’s a special time when pototoes bloom. I look forward to their gentle flowers every year. With flowers this lovely, it would be easy to deceive those who have no ideas potatoes develop in the ground, that potatoes are the fruits of these delicate blossoms.


The cherries are maybe a few weeks away from ripening. Mine never make it to market. We and the birds end up eating them all.


The five young Barred Rocks are not far from laying their first eggs. All siblings, these five hang out together all the time.


It’s also the special time of the year when garlic scapes can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. What do they taste like? They are a lot like string beans with a hint of garlic.
