Potato Planting in a Flowerpot
The potato was planted Easter weekend. It had sprouted eyes, or roots, so I planted it in a flower pot. Now it has sprouted leaves, so I moved some dirt around the new leaves. I have heard that the part of the stem you cover starts making new potatoes.
I had another potato start sprouting, so I will show you what to do to get some for yourself.
The weather has been colder the past couple days, so today I found a large box and tipped the potato pot over. I planned to pull the potatoes out of the soil and put the potting soil back in to the pot.
I was cooking my steak at the same time, and my daughter called me, so my dog had time on its hands to mess with my potting soil. My dog needs a sandbox, I think. Something with toys buried in it for something to do.
I came back to my potting soil and the [dear sweet dog] had started moving it out of the box for me. I was not happy for the help. The dog learned a few new words, and I made it lay down next to the soil, and I kept repeating "No. Naughty. Stay down."
Puppies are fun. [:(]
There were a few potatoes in the pot. New potatoes. Not many. But, some.
