I'm thinking of naming my potato plants because I'm so involved in their lives I feel like their Mum. I know - I'm a sad person with far too much time on her hands...
Yesterday I neatened up the patch they're growing in and watered them and tried to earth them up a bit. They're still only babies, but there are seven of them now and I'm a bit tempted to name them Dopey, Sneezy, Grumpy and so on, but tomorrow there might be more of them and where could I go from there with names?
I think you'll need to click on the picture to see them a bit larger, and you'll notice that 5 out of the 7 are growing on one side of the patch. The side that WASN'T dug over again by moles. At least, I think that is the reason for the discrepancy. This morning there was another mole hill there and I had to remonstrate with the mole community as a whole in French (well, at least that's what people say - Pardon my French) - when I saw it!
I can't wait for them to get those pretty flowers on so that I can dig up the plants and eat some luscious new potatoes... another good reason for not giving them names!
