Growing Potatos

June 20. Potato plants are lush and full, a few started to flower. This is the indication that new potatoes are forming underground. Carefully remove the dirt under the plants and you can "steal" a few. After stealing the potatoes, be sure to back fill at the root level with some compost, cover as much stem as you can. There will be new potatoes developing.

Steam new potatoes for 15 minutes, then pan fry them in a small amount of olive oil, sprinkle with a mixture of crushed garlic and chopped rosemary. Cook until golden brown on both side. DELICIOus1
