potatoIn addition to the native perennials planted in the front yard of moss headquarters we have undertaken growing a potato patch.  These plant-like stalks were started from the extracted eyes of organic fingerling potatoes.  To start, the eyes were covered in about an inch of soil and them covered with more soil whenever their tendrils poked above the soil until they flowered.  The rain and warm weather of the past week has made the plants shoot out of the container.  Photos after the jump.
