It has occurred before that weird things start growing in my kitchen sometimes (besides the mold on food in the fridge. shudder) but this is the very first time a sweet potato has started sprouting in my house. A sweet potato that I fully intended to use. In December.
Let’s see, I had thought to make sweet potato couscous, or curried yam soup, or something equally fun.
Instead it sat there for the last 8 weeks or so, tucked just out of site on top of my bread box.
Perhaps if I cleaned my kitchen more….ha.
I could try to get some “slips” from it and try to get roots to grow in water, but I don’t think I quite have the room for sweet potatoes this year. But darn it, is it every tempting to try one or two…..I must have room somewhere…would it be weird to slip in a couple sweet potatoes amongst my front flowerbed?
And we’ll probably get another cold summer and sweet potatoes need heat.
But the slightest sight of anything growing in my house gets my spring fever going and my gears a’ churning! It’s February tomorrow!!
