.my neighbor always grew his from potato seeds.
I Got a bumper crop of potato's. But never have heard of the deadly nightshade being a close relative...thanks for the info. I hope it comes up in a conversation sometime so I can show my new knowledge..:O)
Part of the reason I am wondering is this year digging up taters, I found three small ones.
They were red on the skin, but long and shaped like the finger taters.
So they may actually have cross-pollinated by themselves and I might have a new species of taters that never existed before!
I’m not gonna eat them, I’m going to plant them to see if I can get a crop going!
I love gardening. Really, it’s fascinating. In a slow way, but still fascinating!
