Are you dying to know what the mystery plant is?
It is a sweet potato.
That's right. A sweet potato from my grandparents garden. They gave it to my mom, she never got around to eating it, so she stuck it in some dirt and well, it began to grow. Then she gave it to me. And now I have a sweet potato growing in my kitchen. Like I said, edible. Food storage. Why not?
So I realize that this game probably wasn't entirely fair. I mean, how many other people do you suppose have sweet potatoes growing in their kitchen? I'm gonna go out on a limb and say probably not many. Thanks to those who played, you made some good guesses, and you gave me some good ideas for house plants if I'm ever in the market.
But probably I won't be, what with my mom giving me spider plants and sweet potatoes all the time.
I'm thinking about starting a group called "People for the Putting of Sweet Potatoes in Dirt and Growing them in Pots in their Kitchen". What do you think? I bet there would be supporters out there.
Anyway, these guys are my constant reminder as we head into the less than sunny days ahead that springtime always comes back again.
