Potatoes

Does anyone know how to tell when a potato is ready to be picked? I planted some over the summer, and I would love to have a fresh potato to put in my crock pot to eat with my stew.

Any and all help (except the evil Google) would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Potatoes are ready to be picked when the skin has a tinge of red and the flesh has some yield under pressure, and when they come off the stem easily.

    Oh wait, that's peaches, sorry. :-o

    Why not just use a different search engine?

  2. You are so right, of course. All search engines are evil. We need a godly man to invent a truly godly search engine. Until then, I'm just typing in possible URLs and seeing what happens- letting God lead me to the right site. I love potatoes in my crock pot but I thought they were all picked this time of year. The leaves are off the trees and there are no more potatoes to pick.

  3. Here's a search engine I use www.swagbucks.com you can even get points, which can add up to money eventually. Give it a try. As for potatoes, there's some videos on here that talk about that. I haven't tried growing potatoes yet, though. I'll keep watching here so we all learn.

    1. I know this comment was in jest, Anon, but I'm going to turn your nasty comment into a hopefully inspiring comment to you. While it is obvious that you are an athiest by your Christian-hate comment, t's funny you mention christianity and retardation, as the pastor at our church (ACC) brought these two subjects up into a lovely, thought-inspiring sermon. While I can't put it as eloquently as he can, the summary is have you ever met a devoted Christian who suffers from mental retardation? No, you have not- and there is a reason. These people were born with the stain of sin on a much, much deeper level. It IS possible to sin in utero, or more apprioraitely, for the MOTHER to sin. It is PROVEN that sins can cause issues at birth. This is not even debatable. They did a lot of research at the Christian teaching hospitals and found a strong correlation between sinning mothers and babies with issues. These people can never be true Christians, as satan has grabbed ahold of them in the womb and sadly they will not overcome it. I hope you will think about this, especially if you plan on becoming a mother. I am going to be praying for you, Anonymouse. Exactly for you. I am very sorry also, but using Google says A LOT about you. They are just another major company who is trying to divide our Christian nation by exposing young minds to EASY ACCESS TO PORNOGRAPHY! HOW DO YOU NOT SEE THIS?! Do you even know how easy it is for kids to use Google for desires? This is wrong. Google will soon be just another company that will sell out to Walmart within 5 years. My pastor believes this as well, and we as a church conducted a boycott outside of their Mountain Vista, CA headquarters. They even allow abortion clinics to post on their website. Aye yi yi.

    2. Yes, I have worked with devoted Christians who have intilectual disabilities! All children are born without sin. You and your pastor need to reread the bible so you can become true Christians.

  8. You don't "pick" potatoes, you dig them up. And why is Google evil?

  9. So if this is a fake site it has brought out the true colors in "christians" and those folks need to check themselves! I bet more than half of them found Jesus later on in life and could only wish they were pure when they got married....although I don't know why you wouldn't want to try the shoe on before buying it anyway.....MC

  10. You can dig up "new" potatoes when they are about 10 weeks or so. Good that way. For the most part potatoes are usualy left in the ground until the plant begins to die.

  11. You "dig" potatoes as soon as the plant above the ground dies off. If you planted them in the summer and haven't dug them yet you're going to want to dig ethem all soon - they'll rot in the ground if the haven't already. Or worse yet moles and groundhogs will get them.

  12. If Ben Seemen had married someone closer in age and maturity, it would have been Ginger. Problem would have been avoided. Mrs Ginger Seemen sounds kinda tasty
