The color purple

Post  Josh on 6/28/2011, 8:32 pm

I picked my purple cabbage today,
purple cabbage

And my purple potatoes plants had died so I pulled those up.
purple taters

So it's been a purple day for me! Purple cabbage, purple onions, purple potatoes

I can't wait to try those purple potatoes, I've never had any of those before.

So jealous. I tried to find purple potatoes without any luck. I haven't had them either. Let us now how they taste!

Don't eat too much purple food at once!




Well...I'm just saying...people who eat too many carrots turn orange. Seriously!

I'd say someone likes purple. Good crop. Keep up the good work.

I remember once being served purple potatoes. I was spanked for refusing to eat them. Evil or Very Mad I was six years old at the time. Sad

Maybe, just maybe, I might try them again one day. Very Happy

Kelejan, I can see why you didn't want to eat them, they just don't look right!

We had purple potato salad, purple slaw, everything was purple but the cow! Very Happy
purple supper

My mom saved some of the bigger ones and she is going to make me some purple french fries, that might not be to bad.

Purple Carrot

Post  WardinWake on 6/29/2011, 10:52 pm

Josh:

We picked a purple carrot today and put it in a salad. The outer skin was purple and the inner core was a dark orange.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.

This one's a very dark purple if the image is a good one from the World Carrot Museum
http://www.carrotmuseum.co.uk/history1.html 
a truly amazing and gloriously quirky website.

Lovely harvest Josh, I hope they all tasted fantastic.

Oh man, Josh, eating all that purple food will make you super healthy! I've been reading a lot about darker foods having antioxidants that their lighter counterparts don't. Gardening and purple foods...you might be the first SFGer to live FOREVER!! Smile
