When a plant is putting lots of energy into growing leaves and flowers, it may not be putting enough into the tubers and fruit. Also I didn’t find any new potatoes in the mulch I’d piled up, so I figured that I was going to get nothing but some healthy-looking potato plants.
But no, all the potatoes were hiding at the very bottom of the trench. Nearly 20 lbs. of potatoes.
I’ve stuck them in the basement and hope that they keep pretty well there. I expect there’s a lot of potato salad and potato soup and mashed potaters in my future.
Ha ha. But I don’t really want revenge, I just want to sell them things. Paintings. Amway memberships. Bogus stocks.
Sometimes it’s so hard to be a good person.
That’s the danger of living cheap. Sometimes you accidentally eat peas that have been thawed and refrozen and never even notice. At least they didn’t kill us!And so the saga of wasps came to an end. My legs recovered, although they were so itchy I had to give up bike riding for 2 weeks. Thank goodness for cortisone cream!
The tea towels, sadly, do not stay put very well. They were a good temporary measure though.
I ran over a wasp nest with my lawn mower! Man did that make the wasps angry. I got stung quite a few times, too, because it took me a few moments to notice that I hadn’t accidentally walked through a thistle patch or one of the usual painful things that happens in the garden.
Ed was brave enough to go and retrieve my shoe and put the lawn mower away. Good thing neither one of us was allergic!
