Bountiful harvest

Greeting loyal readers.  Way back in September mummy plants some Roke kuri, also known as maori potatoes. Well, today she harvested some.  Her and daddy like them.  Me and Nellie are not so keen, considering their literal translation is dog poo. Neighbour Paul likes them so mummy is going to exchange some for some on his produce. Love Nellie and Jasper.

Neighbour Paul's produce stand.  They grow the bestest eggplants.

See how dry the land is becoming.

    Your property is so beautiful!

  2. Never heard of those before. What do they taste like?

  3. Stella the Great Newfenees here, via my scribe, who grows things like that – only they’re red or light brown – in a strange box. She puts a bit of dirt in, plants those things in it and as the greenery comes up, she adds boards to the sides of and more dirt to the box. In the fall she takes out a few more red things than she put in. She isn’t very good at growing these yet. She’s still trying to figure out the best way to do it, I think… I like them – I like anything I can swallow, though….

  4. Those potatoes look delicious! If their name means dog poo, all the yummier! Mmmmm…

    Love and licks,

    Hard to think about a harvest when it has been below zero fahrenheit most of the day and now it is snowing but we are happy!

    I’d love to run along in the grass with you and Nellie, looks so fun. I hope it doesn’t get too dry, so the sheep will have lovely grass to eat still.

  10. Ha, how funny! Hope they taste better than their name 🙂

    Oink oink,
