came to peel potatoes for dinner and most of them are trying to sprout like alien life-forms. instead of just throwing them in the compost bin, they've been dried slightly on the windowsill for a day or so - it stops the shoots being quite so leggy and thin - and now they've been planted in a couple of inches of soil in big plant pots -12 to 14 inches - with 5 or 6 potato bits to each pot. I always grow potatoes this way which might account for why I don't grow a lot but they don't cost anything at all.
