Patriotic Potatoes :)

007

Yesterday I dug up a couple of baskets of these red, white and blue (ok they look purple) potatoes. I planted these in some raised beds that I have in a not so sunny part of my garden. I inter-planted with some herbs that tend to do better in part sun (parsley, cilantro and dill).

Gave them a nice little shower and then I filled the sink up with cold water.  The “poopy” potatoes (as I call them), will float to the top.  These are the potatoes that pesky insects got to, burrowing holes into my spuds, they will have a hollow feel and therefore float to the top of the water.
