Laurel & Yevonne, the Red Pontiac potatoes you planted March 17 in the 2012 Lewis Ginter Community Kitchen Garden are blossoming. That means we’ll check them soon and prepare to harvest the “new” potatoes for Feedmore.
White potatoes have white flowers, and red potatoes have, well, lavender flowers.
Looks like a moonlight pirouette, but it was cloudy daylight, and the saturation was tweaked to bring out the details.
These blossoms may look they’re getting buffeted by wind, but there was only a mild breeze.
The weather looks rough, but it was a great day for gardening.
