I got a nice surprise the other day; here my oldest is holding a little beauty that appeared after some generous, guilt-driven watering:
I had noticed recently that my potatoes were looking really rough and just assumed that I had been neglecting my watering responsibilities and silently gave myself a good scolding. Turns out that the wilting I saw was just the potatoes being ready for harvest a few weeks sooner than I was expecting.
So it’s unfortunate my guilty conscience drove me to water them right when I should have desisted, but I’ll let them dry out now and hopefully be able to enjoy a good harvest later this week.
And hopefully they’ll keep until the weather calls for some comfort food!
