Potatoes in Februarry!

The kids and dh were clearing out an old raised bed, moving the soil to a new bed and they found several potatoes. Enough for dinner tonight! And some small ones to replant as soon as the beds are done. I have 3 new beds done and 2 more in the works for the 2013 garden!
You can see more winter harvests at Daphne's Dandelions!

Homemade Microwave popcorn

Have you tried making your own homemade popcorn with your own garden harvest? I had heard about it and thought I would give it a try. I put about a 1/4 cup of popcorn, I had Robust from my garden and Crimson Jewel from a local store here. I put it in the only paper bag I had left, and taped it closed. I cooked it for about a minute and 30 seconds, and added a small bit of butter and a dash of salt.

It went over so well the family went through two bowls and my daughter complained that the rest of the family were not sharing with her (she was holding the bowl!)
