Houston, We Have TATORS!

Danny and I were tinkering around the garden this evening, just chit chatting.  He was checking out the potato plants, I was cussing the grasshoppers.

"Guess what?" he asked.
"I'm going inside and gonna have me a baked potato for dinner."

And then he whipped this out.

He had just stuck his finger into the top of the dirt and popped it out.  It's a Purple Viking.  It's the first time we've planted this variety.   He just brought me a bite and oh mylanta--it's heavenly.

Hopefully there are many many MANY more out there!!!
