Day #421 Potato Wonder

A couple of months ago I harvested my potatoes – the ones I’d grown in the garbage can on my back deck. Remember? I wrote about the experience . It started because of a library book.

Well, once I'd dug out all the potatoes, I dumped out the dirt from the can, piled it on top of the compost pile, and forgot about it. I kept adding things to the pile, but didn’t really turn it all over.

Thank goodness I didn’t disturb anything. Went out a couple of weeks ago and found that I must have missed one lonely spud. The darn thing has been growing and is peeking up heartily from the covering of dead leaves. I checked yesterday afternoon and found it's still thriving, despite the iffy weather we've been having.

I’m going to wait until the foliage dies back and then, hopefully, harvest ANOTHER crop of taters. Even if I get only one potato out of it, it'll still be an adventure.

I'll let you know what happens...

And now, here's thecover of the 3rd book in the series:
