Well my friend Hal had these potatoes in his vegie basket and he was going to toss them out. I couldn't bear for the poor things to die trying to grow so I took them home and planted them in pots (two potatoes to a pot).. I started slow and mounded dirt on top everytime they showed their heads. I have no idea if I will get potatoes but it's fun thinking about it. I need a bigger pot - or at least a taller one.
