Summer is over, kids are back in school and it's time to Find beauty in the Fall with Miracle-Gro. Now, I'm a practical girl, so if I'm going to go any kind of gardening, it's probably going to be something edible. Not that I have anything against flowers, but I figure if I put forth that kind of effort, I might as well be able to eat it!

Now, according to Scott's Fall gardening information, the things that can be grown in the southwest in the fall are potatoes, tomatoes and carrots. I love potatoes, though I'm relatively fond of tomatoes too! I actually tried tomatoes earlier this year, but they wilted away. :-( I guess it was too hot at that time of the year.

Here is an idea on Pinterest on growing potatoes out of potatoes. According to the blog where that pin came from, non-organic potatoes have been treated with sprout-inhibitor. Therefore, I'm not likely to be able to grow potatoes out of the normal potatoes I would buy at the store. I didn't know that!

So, to plant potatoes, I would need to cut some organic potatoes into pieces which have 2 or 3 "eyes" apiece and plant them in soil. Since I live in an apartment, I would probably use Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix. Or perhaps Miracle-Gro® LiquaFeed®.
