Ethyl, them taters done sprouted! It’s been two weeks since me, Evie, Shorty and Shorty’s 6-year-old daughter, Leyah, planted them Yukon Gold taters. I thought you’d like to see what a tater sprout looks like when it’s just barely out of the ground.
In the winter of 2011, I experimented with growing some potato eyes on a sliver of potato peel given to me by Momma. The peels were not in agreement with winter gardening. However, this spring, one of them, as you can see here, jumped up out of the dirt. In another couple of weeks, those baby tater sprouts will be about the same size (4 inches tall).
