Potatoes And Redbuds

This is the first year of trying potatoes in containers.  They have sprouted and are looking very healthy.  I'll need to add dirt soon.

The redbud trees are just gorgeous right now.

  1. Although I recognize the beauty of the Redbud trees, my heart gladdens at the sight of potatoes racing upwards. My Purple Majesty potato plants have a beautiful purple tinge at the center of each leaf cluster. They should be ready by the end of May. I have grown potatoes in the ground and in containers and I have to say that I got more potatoes from the plants in the ground although it infinitely easier to harvest the potatoes in containers plus, you have slightly lesser chance of bugs that way as opposed to in-ground potatoes. Either way, I love them!
