Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Look! My potato plant actually produced - a hell of a lot better than anything else I planted last spring. Looks llike a bit of benign neglect pays off. Photo of the potatoes that grew on my balcony

I'd forgotten about them this week. I was so busy, and the balcony has been so cold, I didn't wandered out much. Well, mom was pottering around out there and shouted for me to come look. Lo and behold, POTATOES. I confess, you almost need a microscope to see some of them, but who knew one little potato would sprout so many?

Okay, don't rain on my parade. I know they aren't very big, but I didn't expect anything to grow. Plus we didn't put them in until sometime in June. I have this childish thrill about having grown them on a balcony, in the middle of Toronto, 20 floors up. Not a bad little crop. 

... screw growing anything else. I'm going to plant a bushel full of potatoes next spring.
