When i moved house at the end of September i found an old shrivelled up potato in the back of the pantry. It bounced around on the trailer for a while. Got left in a box while i house sat for a week. Dragged it up the the hill to Gidgegannup and decided to throw it in a pot.
By this time it had a lot of shoots but was still hideous looking.
It got daily watering and alternate layers of straw and potting mix as required.
This plant and many others nearby have been savaged by grubs, butterflies, grasshoppers and others and ultimately the leaves have been dying off the last couple of weeks.
Decided to pull it up this morning.
Not a bad return from one manky old potato i think...
