I’m a spud farmer and didn’t know it.
How can that be? Well, apparently when one picks up a sweet potato vine at their garden center, at the end of its growing season it will produce a potato! Seriously, all these years of buying these darn things, and I never knew I had a lovely spud in the mix! Did you know that?
I’m trying an experiment. I had a lime and purple sweet potato vines (which produced one tater each) so I’m trying the old avocado pit/toothpick trick by growing them in water. I’ll report on their progress . . . or failure. They’re already rooting. By the way, that little vase on the right is a $1 thrift find. Love the colors.
Maybe I should just go ahead and boil ’em, mash ’em, butter ’em, and eat ’em. Nah, I’ll be patient.
Gosh darn it, I love the spud.
