Solanum tuberosum – Potato

Solanum tuberosum - sprouting potato tuber

I kept two potatoes too long in the fridge and they began to sprout. This past weekend, I planted them in the yard to see what happens. Most likely a horde of Florida fungi, nematodes, and insects will put a quick end to them; however, I might get lucky and get a chance to add the photographs of a potato plant and its flowers to my collection of plant images.
