It's easier than you would think. I can't believe it took me this long in my life to find out just how easy it is. I would have done this long ago.
I bought some yellow organic potatoes at the grocery store and allowed them to sprout.
Once they were sprouted I cut them into quarters making sure each piece had one sprout on it.
Then, I planted them in the dirt, sprout side up, then covered them completely back up, mounding the soil over top. I guess the mounding part is an important step. My aunt gave me these potato growing tips and she's been gardening for almost half of a century so I don't ask questions, I just do.
Would you know that within a few weeks this is what I have?
So, these little bushes will get bigger and then they will die. When they are dead, brown & crusty that means your potatoes are ready! This won't happen until late summer/early fall but I can't wait to eat my homegrown potatoes. Isn't nature astonishing?
