Somehow when I prepared my cucumber beds some pieces of potatoes must have gotten into the ground with the compost, and now I noticed two plants sprouting (Three originally but I pulled one, not sure what they were and noticed the potato piece still attached )
Now I really never thought about growing my own potatoes but I figure it would be fun for the kids to see a different kind of plant. So I am wondering how difficult it would be to grow them.
Like I said the plants have popped up in my cucumber bed but pace should not be a problem. The plot gets morning and afternoon sun (which can get pretty hot here in California) If I leave them there, do you think I would be able to grow some spuds, and how long does it take?
Like I said it's just a curiosity for the kids to watch so even if we only get a couple small potatoes it would be enough.
