Bringing in the Potato Harvest

On the advice of a green-fingered friend I thought it was about time to dig up the potatoes I planted early this year. The kids gave me a helping hand (of sorts) and Little Lady insisted on taking a broom to the garden. We managed to bring in quite a few and they are just the type I like to cook with.

Our potato harvest


  1. Mashallah .. Maybe I should also have a Vegetable garden in my backyard sometime ...


  2. Assalam-alaikam Maryam dear,
    I definitely reccommend it, just throw some potatoes that grow wrinkly into your backyard and forget about them. You'll soon get new ones. I think it was the easiest thing I grew with the most yeild.

  3. Oh I miss the wide open spaces! Here in Hk a balcony is a luxury! Sigh! This loks like such fun, and you have two angels helping mama! so cute!

  4. nice pics of the kiddies, but them potatoes look a bit mooouuuuuldyyy! lol, still, not bad i guess!

  5. Masha'a Allah! Beautiful kids
