Sweet Potatoes are Sprouting!

Imagine my surprise yesterday when I grabbed an apple and noticed that some sweet potatoes were sprouting!  Originally I had bought a bunch of sweet potatoes thinking that I would cook them all and freeze the extras.  Apparently that was too many since these 3 wouldn't fit into the pot, and well, you know the rest of the story because here they sat uncooked.

So, instead of tossing them in the compost or garbage I am going to try to grow sprouts for the garden!

So, here they sit, about half in water and held up by toothpicks on my window sill.  At least it gives me something to look at when I am doing the dishes!

I'll update you on sweet potatoes as they grow ... for now I need more sprouts!
