My experiment/practice growing potatoes in a kitty litter pail has come to an end. Mr. Potato, as he was known affectionately to his compatriots here at Dogstreet Farm, had been suffering from a yellow pallor for at least two weeks now. There were not many leaves left on his stems and it was time to finally put Mr. Potato to rest.
So, after dumping out the soil from the pail, I was happy to discover these eight small potatoes. None are equal in size to the potato that was originally planted, but I figure that this wasn't too bad of a harvest from a potato primarily grown indoors during winter in a kitty litter pail. In total, they weighed in at 0.61 lb.
Today, I also pulled up the remaining radishes. In general, they are pretty small, but they taste good. These were all planted way too close together and I never thinned them. My second sowing is just starting to germinate now, and these are spaced much better. Hopefully, the second harvest will be a little heftier.
