Growing potatoes is kinda like writing a book

I have taken on a new venture. I am growing potatoes that I hope to plant outside in the spring. I had a few potatoes in a bag that I forgot about, and they grew sprouts. So I cut them up and planted them, and they are really growing into plants. I’m going to keep them inside until spring, then out they go, and we’ll see if potatoes actually happen.

That’s kind of like writing. Yes, I am saying that growing potatoes can be on the same time frame as writing a book. I’m going to have to challenge myself to keep writing as I watch my potato plants grow. I planted the sprout, the plant is coming up,but the most interesting thing is the potatoes, which I won’t see for a long time, just like when you read a book and don’t know how it’s going to end. I have to care for them and give them what they need, and I’ll need to put them in a sunny location. Yes, I’m going to keep them in pots. At least I’ll know they won’t spread to where I don’t want them to be.

Will my mystery potatoes be worth the wait?

There’s only one way to find out.
