i couldn't wait any longer. i had never grown these before - purple or otherwise - but now i know the drill. i had heard rumblings of some others harvesting their potatoes so today i started digging. sure. i only had one plant, and yes, i only got enough for a few meals...and yes, i could have bought the same amount of spuds for a couple bucks.
but i didn't.
i grew mine.
and now i have to figure out what to do with them..a salad, boiled up with some butter, baked in the oven....
