Daily Farm Photo: 11/7/06


Walk In The Woods

A year of Daily Photos ago:
Did you know you can store your potatoes in the garden?
And we've done it again this year. Just dug up some beautiful red potatoes that have been in the ground for months. So full of flavor they only needed to be scrubbed, cut up and boiled, sprinkled with salt, and smothered with organic butter. (Okay, the butter was unnecessary, but oh so good.) Leftovers were pan-fried until crisp in homemade lard and served hot with lots of salt. What a decadent and delicious treat!

  7. I just spent two weeks with 10 teenagers from Northern Ireland and all they liked to eat (besides American junk food) was potatoes. One of the girls in the group was nicknamed potatoes!

  9. I would think that if your nickname is "Potatoes" in Northern Ireland then you must really eat a boatload of potatoes!!

  15. My neck of the woods has just finished its open dialog with the calendar. The trees won and there is color. Finally, Autumn has come out to play. Your wonderful pics give me game plans for when I cheer on my trees. Go team.

  16. Beautiful photo, and mouthwatering post. How long can you store the potatoes in the earth? Won't the hard frost get to them eventually and spoil them?

  17. The photo reminds me of a Robert Frost poem and wouldn't he have loved it, too!

  18. Now I need to say this: I can't live without your blog! It's my first page I open in the morning when I start my computer. And I look at the pictures again and again and I'm working hard to find the house we are looking for very soon. With a lot of place for our animals we dream of. And my first act there after moving in will be: buy two sheeps (I already have names!). Can't wait...
