Red Pontiac Potatoes from the Corgyncombe Vegetable Garden.


Potatoes in the process of being riced.
In "The Tasha Tudor Cookbook", Tasha speaks of putting potatoes through a ricer to mash them.

The ladies of Corgyncombe were up into the wee hours last night settling in dear little Cecily Parsley.
More to come later!

My Dad was Irish, and he was sooo tickled that my Mom and I were both born on St. Patty's day :-)

I am smitten with Becky, her sweet sweater and Irish skirt.
Sarah, what a perfect outfit, the blouse is lovely, the old fashioned print on the skirt is charming and the hat just pulls it all together.
I am planting a small potato patch this year with heirloom potatoes, I have never planted them before.... we shall see!
