Our Inadvertent Potato

At least I think that's what this might be.



I haven't ever grown potatoes, so I'm not sure. It came up all by itself in the compost heap, but I had thrown some old sprouting spuds out there not that long ago. On the other hand, lots of things come up in the compost that are simply weeds.

Anyone out there know a potato plant when they see one?

It does look like a potato plant. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Potato_plants.jpg It's been awhile since I grew them, but there is nothing like new potatoes!

I'm no gardener. Guess I'll have to wait and see.

That looks like what I remember my mom's potato plants looked like. Of course, that was 30 years ago...
