I am the potato princess!!!

Today, I went to grab some beans for dinner and noticed that there were a couple of potatoes poking out of the ground. This is bad because once potatoes start to photosynthesize, they aren't edible. I am going to have a LOT of potatoes this year, it appears. They're busting right out of the ground! So I scratched around a few of the plants close to the path and had twelve good sized, muddy potatoes (it rained a lot this afternoon) before I knew it. Potatoes are the best crop ever. Sometimes I really wonder why tomatoes are the popular backyard choice. I find that they are a lot more finicky and tend toward weird problems that my potatoes just don't seem to have.
