An accidental Harvest

 I really didn’t mean to grow potatoes. I had read that if you stuck a rose cutting into a potato and buried it, a rooted rose plant would result. It didn’t so I pulled out the dry stick and threw it away. I forgot about it. ((don’t mock me)
Weeks later some beautiful plants sprouted in a flower pot in a corner of my garden. When little white flowers appeared I recognized ….potato plants! My granddaughter pulled out the first one, peeled it and, with some ordinary grocery potatoes it was a tiny part of dinner.

If life gives you roses, smell them. If your harvest is potatoes….fry them!

  1. I was certainly amazed! They need a lot of water and although it has been very hot I was very careful to water them as I was expecting some exotic flower. We had some terrific downpours too. I want to try sweet potato vine next year – more for the decorative effect. You have a very nice blog
