I planted potatoes in black nursery pots some time ago...Yukon Gold, Fingerling and Colorado Rose. I've got four pots plus some plants in the ground due to buying too many seed potatoes. The pots haven't all looked that great and yesterday I decided to plant some of my basil starts in the one that looked least like anything was growing there. I thought I should fluff up the soil and reuse it since it seemed fairly unused. Look what I found! A nice handful of fingerlings! Now I'm hoping for even better results in the pots that actually look like there are plants growing in them. I am so excited! I've never grown potatoes before but it's been a snap so far...now I just need to be patient and not decide to reuse any of the other pots until the potatoes are done!
