Several months ago I looked into my cupboard and discovered a bag with 5 very old potatoes in it. They had fallen behind something and I had forgotten they were there, so by the time I found them they had started to sprout out of their eyes. They were headed to the compost bin when I thought what the heck lets plant them.
Little dug up some dirt and put the potatoes down and covered them back up. They were just for fun so I didn’t care if they were planted the “right way.” Just playing in the dirt is fun. We watered them. They grew. Little was proud of her plants. One plant has not been looking good and my friend suggested that maybe the potatoes were done. He was right!
Little dug them up with her hands and placed them on the planter.
We got a whole bucket full!
She washed them off for us. Now I am trying to decide if they will be potato salad, or country fries for Father’s Day. Any way you look at it Little made her Dad a very nice gift.
