I have a degree in Biology and I thought that I would grow potatoes in a pot this year. Trust me, it can be done. So I selected some red potatoes, brown bagged them so that they would sprout, and got ready to plant them. Let me say that I had them sprouted for months. I went to the home supply store and got organic soil and a large pot. I got home all ready to plant the potatoes that I’d now had sprouting for months.
