Nature Tuesday ~ Yield from my garden

My garden is doing very well this year. This is just part of my crop – potatoes.

Potatoes have been known in the Peruvian area for 2500 years before our counting. However, when potatoes were brought to America from America in the 16th century, they did not yet know exactly what to do with them. At first, it was considered an ornamental plant. It took 200 years for this food to spread among humans. In 1767, Maria Theresa issued an order to plant potatoes. The low price of potatoes and the reduction of famine in Europe due to potatoes are probably the two main reasons why this tuberous food has become increasingly important.

Today I share some older posts again.

  1. Those are very nice potatoes you grew! In Ireland, we are famous for loving potatoes. In fact, in America, potatoes are often called ‘Irish potatoes’ to distinguish them from sweet potatoes (an completely different plant). That is ironic, since potatoes originally came from North America to Ireland ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Great looking crop of yummy potatoes. I like them mashed, cut, fried and probably other ways that I do not know about. Here Prince Edward Island has the most of North America crop of potatoes. But yours look still scrumptious. Congratulations. Anything else growing in your garden?
