Digging purple potatoes

The tops of two of the potatoe plants died and the sources say it's time to dig them up. Lynn did the digging and I did the recording for posterity.

A potato in situ.

The haul from that plant.

The haul from the first plant. I thought there would be more, but this was our first try. Next year even more mounding as they grow.

Crepe Myrtle Blooms

One of the two trunks on this crepe myrtle has died, but this side is blooming.

Crepe myrtles blooming is the sign if high summer, maybe even the peak.
