Surprise Potatoes

Probably the most successful thing I do in the garden is compost. Nothing fancy - I just pile it on and let it sit. The other day I stuck my hand into the back of the heap to see what the volunteer potatoes had to offer and my hand just kept going down, down, down into the cool rich darkness of the new soil. Growing potatoes is so easy, just dump some peelings on the heap and ignore. Next year I intend to actually grow a crop. Oh, and they were yummy.
