These are THE potatoes growing! They have to be
hilled up with dirt fast or you cannot eat them.
They will be turning green in the sunlight green
potatoes can make you sick.
Two ways to plant them are either in a deep trench
that you fill in as the plant grows up, or planted
close to the surface and pile the earth on top of
theme as they grow. Joan
: My parents' potatoe vines have small tomatoe-like clusters growing on them! We have never seen anything like it, and yes, they are really growing on the potatoe vines.. Does anyone know what causes this?
