Question of the Week – Potatoes

Posted by romeethredge on April 4, 2013

Last week I had a photo of irish potatoes being sprayed by an airplane. These are being grown for use in making potato chips so they are a special low sugar type of potato, according to my friend Mike Johnson who is in the business. If you fry a thinly cut regular baking potato, it will be dark in color but these lower sugar varieties will have a lighter, more attractive color and a good flavor for chips. You can’t eat just one.

Here’s this week’s question. What is this plant I found blooming this week in a fencerow, and where did it originate and what is it good for?
