If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Remember those Potato Peels I planted in pots back in March? I unearthed one pot-full and VIOLA- I now have one normal size & a bunch of “new potatoes”! Five more pots still growing. #BeforeAndAfter #gardening magic! Too bad I no longer eat potatoes but DH will enjoy them.

I've have grown nervous potatoes in 5 gallon buckets with good success. Yield in not great but very easy to do.

I remember when I was young that my late father would cut the potatoes and put the eyes in the ground and they would grow. This is the same concept but with out the white part.

New potatoes! Oh man, its too early here in mid Ohio for anything but peas. I start checking the potatoes when the beans start filling out (hate those skinny things). Its almost a holiday like family get together. I time it with fresh corn on the cob. Go buy dozen ham hocks. Usually do two skillets of cornbread. Plates of tomato slices and cukes from our garden. We use both picnic tables. Dang, girl, I have to anticipate twice as long now. LOL

Just too early to plant in the ground in TN but in pots on the driveway it's plenty warm enough. We'll have new potatoes in no time!

I REMEMBERED READING ABOUT THAT METHOD OF GROWING POTATOES. THINK IT WAS USING OLD TIRES. MAYBE THAT WAS STRAWBERRIES. EITHER WAY IT WAS DOING POTATOES IN A CONTAINER.

Visiting 81 yr old momma in FL but wanted to share pics I took before I left. Growing potatoes in pots from potato peels. Just keep adding potting mix to keep just the tips of green leaves showing. (Phone will not post pic but it should be in feed or my photos¯)
