For the past few years, I've grown potatoes and I've learned that they pretty much will grow anywhere, under any circumstances and they leave behind microscopic seeds that grow even years after you are sure you've removed them from the area.
My foray into growing potatoes came from some potatoes that had sprouted eyes and were in edible, so I threw them into the ground and grew potatoes. They say you can't do that with commercial potatoes because they put a chemical that keeps the potatoes from growing eyes, but I usually get organic potatoes so I was pretty sure they'd grow. And they did. Because I'm a rule breaker in the gardening and the more I don't follow the rules, the better things grow.
This week, I got it in my head that I wanted to use this laundry basket as another potato growing area.
I didn't have any potatoes on hand, so I went to the ag store and found this!
I can't wait to see how these go!
