Chitting Potatoes

I've been saving organic potatoes with prominent eyes for a few weeks now.
Any time I buy potatoes, I set aside one or two in an old egg carton in a place without direct sun and let it do its thing. I'll put aside the ones already starting to chit (those little green bits you see), or ones that look like they might soon.

Moral of the story is, when you have potatoes that are starting to grow, don't throw them out, chit them!  Each of those little eyes has the capacity to grow a bunch of beautiful potatoes, and while you're waiting for them, you get flowers too!  Planting I will explain soon but in the meantime, set them aside to chit and get excited.
