In this photo you can see that my potato plants (Solanum tuberosum) have started to flower. These flowers are of a Norwegian potato species called Troll. When the potato plants start flowering you know that they are soon ready for harvest. I can’t wait to start digging up the potatoes and serve them with fresh fish that I have caught in the sea! Nothing taste better than food you have produced or caught yourself.
When I was studying the potato flower I noticed that they look very similar to tomato flowers. It’s not so weird since they are both in the Solanaceae family, but I have never noticed the similarity before.
Anyone else growing their own vegetables?
