Potato Time!

I have my first homegrown potatoes! While we were gone for a long weekend, I neglected to have a neighbor water my potato pots, and one of them succumbed to lack of water and kicked the bucket.  So I kicked the pot (over) and got almost 3 lbs of potatoes out of it!  YAY!  I am really looking forward to homemade baked potato salad this weekend for a BBQ with friends.  Yum.  The other two pots are sketchy at this point as to whether they'll recover - I'm going to give them a week or so and see if they recover.  If not, I might harvest and restart with them also.

I haven't posted in a while as things have been pretty busy - here's a few pictures of the girls from the past few weeks...
Kate at the Fort Wayne, IN Children's Zoo, nose-to-nose with a sea lion.  It stayed right by her for about 2 minutes - it was very cool! This was the highlight of the trip to Grandma & Grandpa's for the 4th of July!

Claire in the dishwasher - what is it with toddlers and dishwashers?!?

Claire in the box some fabric came in - who needs toys when you've got a good box to play in?


  1. What great taters!!! And super cute pics of the kiddos too!

  2. I wish I could grow potatoes in my yard, but alas, I have a Beagle destroyer! She may be cute, but she's mischevous. Yours look lovely.
