A-Z 2013 the letter P

I'm feeling a little pooped today on "P" day. 
We've been doing lots of yard work at our house.
Which included planting our potato garden.
My "P" words planting and potatoes and a plethora of other "p" words.

I was not prepared for my "P" post until this morning. Please do not be put off by my lack of punctuality!

 Have I mentioned that I'm a bit of a procrastinator? 

These are photographs of our potato garden. One of two gardens that we plan to have each season; the other being tomatoes and other summer veggies.

If we're lucky and have a good year we could get as many as five pounds of potatoes per mound. That's a lot of potato goodness my friends! 

What do you plant in your garden?

  1. I have to say I would love a garden but cannot seem to get the steam to start it. Its tons of work and of course the results I am sure are worth it it just does not happen for me.

    Nice to have fresh everything. Good luck

    1. Thanks MaryAnn.
      You're right it is a ton of work. More work now that we don't have the kids living home anymore. They do come home however to eat the bounty!!

  2. Good for you! I wish I were working in the garden. It's SNOWING today. Um, spring in the Midwest I suppose! My garden is pretty small since we live in town, but I plan to have a few tomato plants, green beans, cucumbers and a pumpkin or two since I love Halloween! They look pretty sitting on my porch!! Maybe I'll get to play in the dirt next week! Happy A-to-Z 2013! ~Angela, Whole Foods Living, http://www.wholefoodsliving.blogspot.com/

    1. Snow! I love front porches Angela they are so charming. And with plants they are even more so..

  3. Never really been one for growing veggies, don't have the patience to plant and wait for things to grow.

  4. Love your garden and envy all those home grown potatoes.

  5. My yard is too small for a garden ... so we only have roses and local plants. But that's so cool, to have your own vegetable garden.

    1. I love roses Sylvia but no matter how many I've planted we've killed all but one. I think we just have to much clay and it's way to hot!

  6. Your 'P' post has plenty of great photos to give us a look at your garden. Gardening is a favorite for us this time of year, but for the last couple of years we have not had one due to the water shortage in our area of West Texas. Great bunch of 'P' words...plethora one of my favorites. I should have thought of it as a word for my Fabric Stash! LOL!!!
    I do hope you have a plethora of potatoes.

  7. Sue, All those p words in your post today just cracked me up!
    Last season our garden fried in the heat and sun because of heat upwards of 100+ for weeks, broke my heart. This year we're putting in a water holding tank for rain water so we don't have that happen again.

  8. For not being prepared today's post, you did a spectacular job. I wish you good luck with your potatoes!

    1. I took at least two of these pictures with my coffee this morning!

  9. It's still been cold and snowy in our neck of the woods too, so I haven't ventured out to plant the potatoes yet, but we do have peas that are an inch or two high now. Neither do extremely well in our are as it gets too hot and dry in July and August, but I always keep trying anyway.

  10. That is a lot of potato goodness! Hope you'll be sharing some delicious recipes as well!


I'm always interested in what you have to say...
