Potato Flowers

The potato plants at “The Other Place“ of Oven and Earth Farm (my parents’ operation) are just wrapping up their summer bloomin’. Actually a few of the varieties were past prime already when I took these photos last week.

I just think potato flowers are so darn pretty, and a whole field of them is breathtaking, that is, if you’re into agricultural beauty. My parents will start digging a few new potatoes for family consumption soon, but the big potato harvest won’t start until the skins have hardened up, and the tubers can be dug with the tractor in the early fall.

These are so fragile and exquisite – I love their light-struck pale violet colours!
