Unexpected Potatoes

As most of you already know, I didn’t do a garden this year. But the potatoes had different ideas. Obviously we left some potatoes behind last year and the decided to take root.

Earlier this year, I pulled up a “weed” to find potatoes attached to the end! So I left all the potato weeds to see what would happen. I didn’t water them, pile dirt around them… nothing!

There were only about 6 plants and they never got more than a foot tall. They all died back about a week or so ago, I so yanked them last night…

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at the few potatoes I got for absolutely no work at all!
