Home Grown Potatoes
Yes...we grew potatoes in garbage bags this year. Yesterday we dug into the first bag (once the foliage turned brown) and ended up with about 15 very small redskins, basically enough for one meal. See them in the first photo right out of the ground and in the second, cleaned up a bit. I cut the larger ones so that all of them were pretty uniform in size and then steamed them until fork tender. Once steamed, I cooked up a few pieces of bacon and then left the drippings in the pan, sauteed the potatoes adding salt and pepper and then sprinkled them with crumbled bacon and sliced green onions(also from the garden). A yummy experiment!!
