One Potato


This potato was harvested from our garden yesterday.  I show it here with a French one euro coin and an American quarter to help evaluate the size.  Last year our potatoes got the blight and we harvested almost nothing.  That patch was quite weedy so this spring my husband went over it well with the rototiller–three times.  We were not expecting any sprouts from last year, but some did come up and that is where this lovely specimen was produced.  The potatoes we planted this year have also gotten the blight in spite of treating with a copper solution called bouilli bordelaise but they were further along than last year’s so I think we will be able to  harvest some for this winter.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
