Sound like my life, well, except for the 'we' part.
Just roll with it, God knows what he's doing.

Every year i grow all several variety of grocery bought potatoes. They always sprout these potatoes after a week buying it from grocery. They say store bought potatoes don't grow since it is treated,not true.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I cannot eat the potatoes fast enough; they start growing in the bag.

I looked in the book and the authors talked about this too. I tried and have a beautiful taro root plant growing in my office. I can't wait to plant it outside.

If you scroll to the bottom of the post, you will see pictures of it.

Hi davsher - They definitely will. I have a post about that on my blog, and have 5 or so beautiful bean plants growing in a pot. They have even flowered for me and I just checked it and it has a bean pod growing. If you want to see them, you can look at the following post from my blog. (Sorry, I don't mean to bombard the entire plantswap community with my blog postings. It's just that I've been doing a little experiment with different produce items and blogging about them.)

I would love to see your plants when they grow.

For the list of produce, I have tried so far, you can look here

Amish seed


My whole idea for doing this was our old vegtable garden spot won't raise a good fight,so we are going to seed it down with a home made seed mixture. The Amish don't treat there seed. so part of the mixture will be their seed. like black eye and pink eye peas, hairy vetch,buckwheat,ect for green manure. it's worth a try David

I too have fought cancer for 9 years, you cannot believe how the medical bills have drained us plus gasoline and medication even with all our planning and working some 40 years we live month to month now...The seeds from grocery store may be a good idea for me, I only have a container garden these past few years...Grateful for whatever comes along these days...

Oh I can totally relate! We are 160 miles round trip to our doctors at Vanderbilt but of family doctor is 16, and even tho it's a burden right now we still love our country living.
Praying for you! Especially that you stay in remission and healthy.

Hey, I say if you've got a blog, flaunt it!

I tired to grown pigeonpeas from a bag in the grocery store, but the weather was too wet and cold. I will try again and let you all know the results

Thank you so much for the encouragement, I take maintence chemo Herceptin, I hav inflammatory breast cancer which they keep at bay with this chemo, it makes me tired for a few days, but no loss of hair or sickness...We live in the country also out of city limits so I have a bucket garden and a few flowers, not real good at it but trying to learn how to do better, I think I will only plant patio tomatoes this year, they seem to be fine in buckets...
