Post 27: Free Spud Heaven!

I was about re-use some of last year's spud growing compost in my new raised bed - but then I saw these little beauties sticking out the top. Free spuds!

I must have left a couple of spuds when I reaped my crop last year and by magic nature has done it's thing. Clever stuff that this nature busines, as I'm sure it says you aren't supposed to have seed potatoes out in the frost. These hardly little buggers have been in through snow!

Given they've started so well on their own accord, I've now brought them into the sun and watered them. Whether such tender loving care will kill them off remains to be seen.
