Liam of the Lettuces

We encountered the owner of this long and lovely patch
of vegetables recently on an after-dinner walk.

I've admired his lush rows of potatoes, lettuces and onions
since my first visit to Carrowholly, four years ago,
and here he was, finally. We chatted for a bit and
he sent us away with two massive heads of lettuce
and a bunch of sweet onions.

You might recall my post a few weeks ago
of three scarecrows: same garden.
The fruits (er, vegetables) of his toils are for sale
at the Thursday market in town. We bought a bag
of "mucky" potatoes last week -- still covered in dirt.



  1. yum! and did you boil the potatoes in lightly salted water and mash 'em with kerrygold butter?? did you? did you?????

  2. laurie...I roasted them with lots of olive oil and salt and pepper = equally yummy!
