Purple People Eaters!

Well, the boat left town yesterday.....without me!

However will they get along without me?!?!  Just kidding...Ron and Alex are on board to help.

I am staying in town for awhile to keep the garden open and take care of Levi...not that he needs a babysitter...I just think it's my job to be here with him as much as possible.

The weather was fantastic today...and NO BUGS!!!  I love it when it's like that.  Business has been good...I am running out of vegetables to sell people, but somehow they always manage to fill a bag or two.

This morning I harvested a potato plant.  I have been dying to see what's in one of those tubs ever since I got back from vacation and today I could not stand the suspense any longer!

I've got to say that it was the funnest thing I've harvested in the garden to date!!!

WHAT!!!???? Are you kidding me?!?!?!  Look at all the potatoes that grew from one potato start!!!

They aren't huge, but they are SO beautiful!!
