Abandoned Garden?

Ever since Ramadhan came along up until yesterday, I never had a chance to go out to my back garden and have a closer look to see what was going on with my whole setup. I know, I'm using the fasting month as an excuse but to be honest, I was just too lazy and didn't bother to go out at all, even to water my plants or do anything beneficial with them. I totally abandoned them for quite sometime.

By the time I convinced myself that my patch needed some TLC, it was starting to look like a mini jungle.

While I was in the garden, sorting out all the tangled vegetation in the patch,  I remembered that I had thrown a couple old potatos from my kitchen into the ground, right before Ramadhan. What I didn't know was, it had grown really quickly. As I wanted to clear the patch a little bit, I pulled them out and was utterly surpirsed as to what I found.......



I should have known, the Irish staple food is the good old spud and I suppose, it shouldn't be a surprise that they grow so well here. Or maybe, potatos are just so easy to grow. Come on, give it a try and let me know, OK?


Not bad results really considering that these came from a couple of almost rotten potatos.Oh, and not to forget my cherry tomatoes that I planted from seeds.


So, the next time you feel like throwing away your unused potatos, don't. Bury them in the ground. I definitely won't ever throw away any old potatoes in the kitchen from now on.

Anyway, with my new self-grown ingredients, what do you think Mummy Nana will be cooking today? I'll tell you in my next entry...
