Call A Spud A Spud



Potato (solanum tuberosum) is listed under the same family of eggplant/aubergine (solanum melongena), although we won't guess they are, to judge by appearance. We grow our own spud of yellow and red skin, and another patch of Maori potato which has purple skin.

Michelle of Greedy Gourmet invites us to capture the best moment of our bond with potatoes or the potatoes with us, with different style, cooked or uncooked, you're the best of imagination. I am sending this entry for SnackShots #1: Potato.

I put the washed potatoes in a clear vase. My concept is a potato 'cocktail'.

Great photo!
I wish we could grow potatoes here, but the ground it too much clay!

Pepy: thanks!

Susan: hehehe... thanks!

Bron: coming from you, that's a huge compliment, Bron hehehe thanks.

Katie: oh yeah, they just don't like clay. there's an alternative though that you can make a raised beds as we do and make a mixture of sand, peat, and soil. they'll love that!
