Ah bless. My spuds have started to poke their little leaves above ground.
So what do I do? Er, cover them up with earth again, that’s what.
It’s for their own good, I assure you. Piling a heap of earth onto the fledgling plantlets (or “earthing up”) will encourage tuber development and will also act as a bit of a safeguard against any late frosts. I sincerely hope that the spuds appreciate the TLC involved in what I shall henceforth dub Earthing Up Day.
In contrast, meanwhile, this here Spud will be uprooting for a couple of weeks. I’m USA-bound in a couple of days, with Seattle and San Francisco in my holiday sights. I predict that I will be eating a lot while I’m away. And still posting occasionally, when I’m not busy digesting. I’ll also be taking in this feast of food bloggery, which should be very filling indeed…
But before I go, and with a nod to St. Expeditus, the patron saint of procrastination introduced to us by Tangled Noodle, I wanted to make a looooong overdue acknowledgement of these blogging badges given to me by 2 lovely bloggers:
As for sharing the blog love, consider it shared among those oodles of blogs that divert, entertain and educate me every day. Just keep it comin’ folks.
