New Potatoes!

We used Phil Foster's big honkin' red potatoes as seed potatoes this year and are quite pleased with the results so far. The plants are just starting to senesce, but I dug one up tonight for a sneak preview. Not too shabby considering each plant was started with 1/4 potato. Sartaj is included for scale.

"Candy" for the HGP

We are happy to announce that today marked the beginning of a strategic partnership between AHMF and the Homeless Garden Project. We delivered 6 cases of "Candy" sweet white onions for their 70 member CSA. Unfortunately, I pulled out to deliver them before Nancy had a chance to get any photos, but they were large, good looking and a "high quality product" in the words of Paul Glowaski, HGP's Garden Director. We look forward to supplying them with "Apple" sweet and "Tiburon" poblano peppers later this season. If you haven't been out to the HGP recently, it is beautiful this year. A map to their garden can be found here.
