We could make Luxembourgish fries

Check out what my son and I recently dug up from our garden:

This is possibly the world's tiniest maturely shaped potato
By "garden", I should clarify, I mean the couple of plants that sprouted from the two legendarily gross potatoes we buried in the yard a few months ago, after general neglect and disorganization in our kitchen helped us all learn important lessons about the circle of life.*

So I'm pretty sure a few more harvests like this will only solidify my new position as the leading provider of non-demeaning meals for the world's smallest needy people.

Should this possible future selfless** role qualify me for the world's first preemptive Nobel Peace Prize? I'll leave that up to you.

Full Disclosure: I will pay you in all the tiny deep-fried potatoes you can eat if you make this happen.



* Much cheaper and less painfully than a puppy, I might add.

** For the record, the term "selfless" still allows me to make an honest man's living by taking exorbitant profits, so don't let that affect your decision.

You know what? I really, really, really wanna say something witty but all I can think of is how small that whatever you call it is.

Maybe TLC can create a show about your garden to follow "Little People, Big World."

Instead of "small" you need to think if it as "petite." You could call it a Petito! I'm a marketing genius!

Yes, we invested about $200 in hoses and seeds and things to make food grow in the back yard. So far, we've got about 6 tiny tomatoes ... so $30/tomato. Growing stuff is harder than I though. Except the weeds. Those grow well.

Hey, that is one tiny potato more than I could have grown.

Kori said...

Wow; you have a real future in this growing business.

Aunt Juicebox said...

That is one truly tiny tater!

Renee said...

*sigh* Whenever I take a break from reading other people's blogs, I always come to yours and fear I've been gone too long. Missed you, Literal Dan.

I'm seeing little tiny shoe string fries.

Just call it diet fries and you will make money.

That is the cutest freakin' tiny potato to ever be birthed from a science experiment gone south.

And you nobel chariot awaits you, sir. But I'm afraid the other Nobel is going to have to take a pass.

The last time I tried to grow potatoes they rotted in the soil, so personally I'm impressed!

Dad Blog said...

"Luxembourgish fries" I had to laugh at that one because t potato would make a "super size small" fry bag.

Does every spud come with a nickle? If so, get planting Buddy!
