Vales Emerald

Autumn is here and it is time for harvesting.

The potatoes did exceptionally well this year. Cannot even remember when was the previous year like this.

The past few years I have been growing Vales Emerald (Solanum tuberosum ‘Vales Emerald’) just to see how would it do up here in the north.

It grows well and the potatoes are of good size and beautiful. Unfortunately the crop is only one third what it should be.

In other words I will try something different next year and grow a new variety.

Sandved (Dasiphora fruticosa ‘sandved’) is a new variety I bought this year.

It seems to be doing well and has been blooming several months.

It should be very hardy but time will tell. It would be nice addition to the flowerbed.
