First Taters

Late January, I found a bag of red potatoes in the cupboard, sprouting away in the hidden darkness. They were too far gone to eat, so I cut up a few and planted them. It's way too early for planting them in the ground, but I have some large planters. Let's give it a try.

This week, the first one is beginning to sprout above the soil. I guess we're going to have taters this year.

Here's the photo from the first of March. I sense that there's been some growth. 

And by March 15th, it appears that there may be some more growth. I'll have to measure to make sure, but I think so.

I've since filled the pots to the rim with additional dirt and topped it off with composting straw. That's as big as I can go for now.
