What a fun story about this mystery plant that Chris tagged me in on Twitter this week. Obviously, not a pumpkin.
It’s likely a potato plant. So how did it happen if no potatoes were planted? Chris thinks it’s a gift from the City of Boise compost program. A piece of potato placed in a compost cart maybe survived the process and made itself at home when Chris added it to the garden.
Pick up free compost from the Joplin Road site near the Boise Fire training center, or at the Idaho Botanical Garden.
Maybe you’ll get a surprise potato plant, too.
