Potatoes are not a Recyclable
its been a long time since I last posted anything, and for that i apologize. I have several forthcoming posts in my drafts, but in the meantime I figured I'd share this:
while out on trash night looking for useful things to re-purpose in my various garden projects, I discovered a bag of potatoes....in a recycling bin. granted they have eyes, but they are perfectly firm and edible potatoes and really have no business being discarded, but since I am a living example of "one man's trash is another man's treasure" I gladly accepted them.
I will probably use these as seed potatoes for my garden this year. bag weighs a hair under 3.5 pounds and since they are russets I can expect to harvest around 70 pounds, provided this summer doesn't get too hot, and since we are having such a mild winter, I feel it will.
Thank you for reading :)
