Super Spuds

Potatoes are charmers. Think of Mr. Potato Head, Potato Salad on the 4th of July, or playing ‘Hot Potato’ with adjectives and adverbs as we did at Franklin School…

They must have charmed the conquistadors in Peru, and one wonders how much gold was brought back in relation to potatoes. The fact that they do have eyes and did cause a million people to immigrate to North America just add to their allure.

Though harvesting potatoes is a bit onerous, just ask some kids to help and tell them they are looking for buried treasure — they won’t be disappointed!
