Potatoes and Ink

A man gave me a potato at a plant swap back in May.  He said it was productive, a good keeper, not susceptible to mildiou and the seed spuds sell for a pound each in England.  He said the name of the variety but they were not words I could understand in one go.  In English with an accent?  Some other language?  I felt like Jane under the beanstalk.  Now I have harvested them and the one little potato produced 4 big ones and three little ones.  I put two aside to grow next year.  Can anyone help me with their name?

Boiling was probably not the best choice of cooking method.  They sort of fell apart.  I guess they can be classed as mealy.

On another subject, I don’t know if there is something in me leftover from previous Inktobers (I may be acquiring a habit) or if it is in preparation for this coming Inktober, but here is a small sketch, very haphazard and incomplete.  I added the colour at home.

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.
