On mayday I uncovered a potato which you will agree is remarkable in it’s horse-like features. I decide to assist it through the growing year.
Note sprout from the belly
Weekly checks and washes throughout May
Sprout continues to lengthen and multiply
Will soon require more stability
1st attempt at nest construction
2nd attempt at nest construction with chicken wire
Planted the potato leaving removable section for continued monitoring
Continued to check and water as needed
Concerned about the solitude, brought marigolds for company
Evidence of slug damage, returned in the evening to remove them.
All looking well, watered and packed in more nest material
