Potato Tech31 December, 2017
I shared lunch with some permaculture friends on Christmas day and they gifted me some of their seed potatoes. Today I planted them. Having seen how the plants thrived in my friend’s garden, and having learning more about potato diversity while I was in Peru, I’m excited to experience my first attempt growing them. As I do so, I extend the line of humyns who have woven relationships with this plant over thousands and thousands of years; an honour and a privilege.
Seeing the potatoes like this is freakin rad! I got to appreciate the potato plant as an energy capture and storage technology: harness solar energy, grow a battery, redeploy solar panels from that battery months later. Beautiful.
