Deep within the soil, the tiny seeds of carrots and the "eyes" of seed potato chunks that were planted in the early spring take root. Silently, steadily over the warm summer months root vegetables grow. Unseen. Until end-of-summer and the tease of autumn gently intersect.
For several years, I have been planting three varieties of potatoes: purple skin with purple flesh, red skin with red flesh, and white potatoes. Sliced, then fried alongside pastured hen eggs with deep orange-colored yolks... Holy moly.
