Square Potatoes

We had several loyal farmers market customers ask if they could buy some potato plants, so we planted some potato seed pieces in 4 inch pots to get them started. We had a couple of pots left over so we have been diligently watering them.

Andrea noticed the pots were bulging a bit so she popped them out of the pots. 

Low and behold the pots were full of “square potatoes”. That took about 4 weeks.

Pretty slick trick.

Did you know that the Japanese grow square watermelon. They are considered a delicacy and sell for about $50 US. When was the last time you paid $50 for a watermelon. Hopefully never.
