Here is a great example of how, in gardening, a little bit goes a long way. Last gardening season I planted a few leftover finger potatoes(correct name?) I had around the house and got a nice little crop out of that. I must not have gotten them all out of the ground, as shortly after the harvest new shoots popped up out of the ground. I just let them do their thing over our San Francisco winter without really any attention or care at all. I actually figured I wouldn't really get anything out of this second bunch of leftovers I didn't even plant! Au contraire! While doing my spring clean-up of the garden yesterday I indeed got an even larger harvest than the first time. Soon-to-be a virtually free meal of mashers. YUM.
