On a whim, we decided to try to grow potatoes in our garden this summer. We’d found some that had started to sprout under our sink and decided: “Hey why not bury them? Let’s give it a try!”
Unsurprisingly, they didn’t do too well. I’m pretty certain our variety of potato was not meant to be planted in the summer… Nevertheless, I had hoped against hope that since their vines had grown to a lovely length, hidden in the ground we would find a bounty of potatoes! Sadly, we only found 3 and they were pretty small. Mark’s proclaimed that our spuds were duds. But, oh well! It was still pretty neat seeing them grow. Maybe next year we’ll give it a serious try.
