Potato Blossoms

As I was taking a quick stroll around the kitchen garden tonight, I suddenly noticed that the ""Nicola" potatoes are starting to produce bloom clusters! I have been so busy as of late, I am afraid that I don't know exactly when these started to appear. They are still are a week or so from opening up. I must admit that I am a bit perplexed ."Nicola" is listed in the Maine Potato Lady's catalog as a mid-season potato. The other potato that I am growing, "Dark Red Norland", is listed as an early potato. Yet, my "Nicola" plants are starting to produce blooms and the "Dark Red Norland" aren't showing any signs of any buds yet. stay tuned....!
