About me

We have a small agriculture operation in a beautiful valley at about 7,800 feet above sea level located about half way between Cheyenne and Laramie, Wyoming
My husband takes great joy in his garden and fresh vegetables, although gardening at this elevation certainly has it's challenges. A short growing season is only one of a few of the snags..... The deer have literally levelled this summer's wonderful lettuce, kale, strawberries, and other daily tables enjoyments. The rascals even leveled the peppers and put a whale of a dent on the tomatoes !
But next year we'll plan to put in a much taller fence around the garden.....
The question I would love to have some help with is what are the tomato like clusters that some of our potato plants have where the flowers of each plant were ??
We have some Yukon Golds and Red potatoes that we have had some wonderful potatoes from, but we are totally confused as to what these tomatoe like clusters are on the tops of the potato plants.
Could someone please write and let us know what these are? Are they something only one type of tomato variety develops or are they just something all potato varieties can produce ?? Are they edible and if so, what do we do with them ??
We certainly appreciate any and all help with this quandry.
Thanks !
