My potatoes are growing potatoes! (Before growing plants.) Something tells me this is not good. I've never had this happen, but I've also never dug up my potatoes to check on them. I accidently uncovered them while weeding today and I noticed the bright pink color of the new potato (vs. the old potato). So, I dug up two more areas with no potato sprouts coming up... same thing.
Shortly after this picture was taken, the potato started speaking to me in the voice of Freddie Mercury, which was a relief because Freddie had been trying to contact me from Beyond through Queen's song, "Somebody to Love" played over and over on the radio. I planted the potato back in the ground, mystery solved. For now.
