Surprise Potato

No one told me that when I put in potatoes last year that I'd, without a doubt, be growing potatoes forever. Although, when I stopped digging for a moment and thought about it, this is neither surprising nor a problem - for the very same reason. I mean, why would you want to stop, after all - and then what would be your motive for warning someone?

So I was pleasantly surprised when I returned from three weeks of trail-blazing through someone else's backyard and started to dig over my weed patch - to unexpectedly find two kilos of these babies. Winner.


  1. I was rather embarrased this year when the BEST potatoes I grew were the ones I didn't plant. They were leftovers from last year. Mother Nature is a far better gardener than I.

  2. It certainly is a trend in my garden. People tell me I have a wonderful garden. I quietly know that in the most part, its probably by accident...
