Never tried tire potatoes, but I do have a suggestion about couch potatoes: The springy thingies make GREAT curly fries. High in iron, too...

#1 Son and I went up to the garden and dug spuds yesterday. We were way late planting due to excessive rain early in the springtime and only planted 5lbs. of seen potatoes. We weighed the potatoes on the bathroom scale and came up with 52lbs. of spuds. Only a few braggers, but most were about the size of grocery store spuds. The tire potatoe is still out there. Still growing and blooming. Now up to 4 tires and needing at least one more. We are going to leave it alone until it starts to die back. You know what I am thinking? I bet we wind up with a whole mess of itty-bitty new potatoes. We are concidering pinching off the blooms and not putting any more tires because I have an idea that the plant is putting all it's energy into putting on new top growth and blooms instead of makeing bigger spuds.Will keep every one up to speed as time moves on. Thanks for asking!
