Q.Old Potato

Anonymous added on March 5, 2011 | Answered

I forgot about a potato on a shelf in my home and when I went to grab something, I noticed it was growing wild! I put it outside in some regular old dirt, as a joke – saying that it was going to grow, and it did. Now it is about 6 inches tall! What do I do now? How can I get the most out of this?

If you would like it to produce more potatoes, it will need plenty of space to grow in, so either plant it in a large container or into the ground. Let it grow until all of the foilage has died back and then you can dig where you planted it and harvest more potatoes.
