giant potato

Last year we had potatoes growing in the park strip we dedicate to food production. While this year we reaped a magnificent crop of beets from that locale, there were a few potato volunteers that came up as well.  Since it's been so cold and wet we thought we ought to get the stragglers out of there.
We were shocked to harvest almost 30 more pounds of this root crop that we thought we had entirely gathered up or plowed under.  One particular giant weighed in at over 2 1/2 pounds!  Such is the bounty of Nature or, as was said in my favorite line from that silly dinosaur move, "Life...uh...finds a way."
