Instead of throwing away any potatoes that have stared sprouting, try putting 2-4 toothpicks in the side and put the half which is starting to sprout into a small bowl or glass of water. The shoot will get stronger and soon you will have a very interesting potato plant growing.
They are quite the conversation piece and grow so quickly you can see the change overnight. We started ours out in a shot glass, Just look at it now! The kids have even given it a name ~ "Spudly".
Enjoy! It is sure to start a few very interesting conversations by all who lay eyes on it.
