We're going organic

I love this.

Organic potatoes for seed, special ordered on the interwebs.

12 stinkin' potatoes for $19.95. I'm not sure what I really expected, but I guess it was more than 12 little bitty potatoes!

OK, so they're
flowering potatoes. We're going to grow them on our deck in potato bags.

The irony of it: We live on 20 acres, and we're going to grow them on our deck, in decorative bags. Paul works with ag fertilizer and chemicals for a living, and they're organic.

This'll keep me laughing all weekend!

But even the box is pretty!

Don't all potatoes flower? I am sure that the organic blooms will be far more healthy however...

Well you're in for a treat. If you've ever planted taters in the ground - they are very prone to bugs and stuff. So you're right on with those tater-bags. I've never heard of them! I must google that. We've got ours in old recycling containers. It's all very trashy looking, but . . . orgaaaaanic.
