Love A Spud

From Dave Smith

Me? I’m a potato junkie. I’ll take one in any form you can think of except raw, and I’ll consume it with or without relish and abandon. I’ll take it…

mashed
smashed
…or succotashed

fried
dried
…and served on the side

sliced
diced
…and lightly spiced

boiled
broiled
…and lightly oiled

heated
kneaded
…and onion-treated

faked
creped
…or shaked-and-baked

floured
soured
…and cauliflowered

chilled
grilled
…and parsley-filled

steamed
creamed
…or fry-machined

whipped
chipped
…or butter-dipped

fluffed
puffed
…or broccoli-stuffed

breaded
shredded
…or lettuce-bedded

teased
cheesed
…and topped with peas

wrinkled
crinkled
…or cayenne-sprinkled

wet-farmed
dry-farmed
…and organic farmed

Love ‘taters

Someone needs to make a poster of that including the photo of the spud or an artistic rendition of it. I’d hang it in my house. Let me know when it’s ready.
My father and I laid out 20 rows 20 feet long one spring. It was pouring rain as we dropped each un-scabbed piece in the puddle before covering them. Every single one sprouted and gave us about 400 pounds of oddly shaped potatoes later that year. There was a drought that year, but I had an underground spring. Certainly organic, but considering that they were never watered by hand, would that be wet farmed or dry farmed?

ME TOO! Great post, Dave; great comment, Elaine!
