NOW THAT'S A POTATO.......

and that isn't a bird egg.  It is a  jumbo white egg.  I bought two bushel  of these potatoes.  Just about everyone of them were this size.   I mean, one potato is enough to feed four people.   They were grown in Shady Valley, TN

That is the biggest potato I have ever seen. You could make a lot of french fries with that one! They really grow them big in Tennessee these days. I thought it was Texas that grew everything big.lol.

That is one big potato. Thanks for your visit the other day. Sarah is all moved in. It's so good to have her back with her kitties. Now pray that she will find a good job.

I love potatoes, so I like that one! I think I might be able to eat that whole thing myself.
Like I said, I really like potatoes.

Hi Clara!
I would love to have that potato and make some mashed taters and gravy.Once again I have ulcers and all I ever want when that happens is taters and gravey. :)
Clara the twins are doing fine, growing like you wouldn't believe. Since Steph's mom and dad moved, she has to make a special trip to see me and with three little ones, it is not often she gets to Albemarle. I do have pictures and as soon as I feel like it, I will post some pictures of the boys and Caroline. Glad to hear that you and Bill are doing ok. Love to hear from you. Take care. Talk later.

Hi Clara, Well---Texas has nothing on us here in Tennessee, does it??? They always say that Texas grows everything BIGGER. Well--not this time. Tennessee did it!!!!!! ha
Hugs,

Wonder how long it would take to bake that thing?

Lola said...

Boy, that's a lot of good eating. They sure do grow things big in Tn.

Clara....in TN said...

Leedra, I baked it and it took almost two hours at 350 degrees.

Rachel said...

Wow!! Someone has a green thumb!! I love potatoes!!! Bet it'd take a good while to bake that one!!

Rachel said...

Now I see in your comments how long it took to bake it! Bet it was good though!!

Beth said...

Gracious, Clara...that is some big potato. In fact, I don't believe I've ever seen a greater tater! Ha, ha. :-) I reckon that must have fed your whole family.
