Okay, so are there any gardeners out there? You may remember that, on the day that I did much of my planting, I went to make dinner and found a sprouting potato. I had some soil left, so I threw the potato, along with another one that looked to be on the edge of sprouting in, covered both with soil and started watering. Nothing seems to have happened with the second potato, but the sprouting one has grown into a lovely little potato plant.
So, my question is this:
What do I do now? Specifically, if the plant is growing from the potato, then how to I end up with a harvestable potato? Seriously, if the plant grows from the tuber, then where does the tuber come from?
I know some of you are probably laughing at this gardening newbie, but I really want to know.
