I went to the back yard to check on my Trash Can Potatoes last night. Big mistake. Why? Monk Man knocked the bucket over and dumped all the dirt into the grass. So being the curious cat I am, I dug through the dirt to see if anything had happened.
Nothing happened. Not a single root from the potatoes I put in the bucket.
Note to self: Store bought potatoes do not work. Buy seed potatoes or tubers.
So I am going to order some tubers from Burpee today. I will update some more when the tubers arrive. I might even post some pictures of what the hell tubers look like.
I just checked Burpee and the tubers are not available at this time. So much for that idea. Shit.
Next idea? My boss is really close friends with a potato farmer somewhere back east. The next time he calls I am going to ask him to send me some seed potatoes.
Problem solved. Hopefully.
