Day 23: Harvesting Potatoes

So I made my first attempt at growing potatoes the way most people do I’m guessing – by sticking an old potato in the dirt.  I was amazed at how quickly these guys grew.  Here are some pictures of my red potato harvest.  I think I probably harvested them a little too early though.  Oh well, live and learn.

Happy 4th of July!!

    • Yes, the red potatoes that Costco sells seem to sprout well. I don’t think they have the chemical that keeps them from sprouting in them but I can’t be sure. They don’t say organic or anything. If your potato seems eager to grow I say give it a shot. 🙂 Sweet potatoes like heat but I guess most other potatoes like it cooler. I’m also growing a sweet potato but I haven’t harvested that yet to see what’s going on underneath. 🙂
