I planted my first garden this year and I have potatoes, three kinds of tomatoes, a green bell pepper and rod hot peppers. My question is I used potatoes that I had gotten at the grocery store and they were bud in the pantry so I decided to plant them. They are growing quite well, but are they safe to eat?

I have never planted potatoes but I have heard of people doing that! I think it will work just fine!

Yup Spud, that's how I plant my potatoes. Cheaper than buying seed potatoes.

yep me too!! I usually buy some, then finish out my "line" with any of last years potatoes that may be left--and or house potatoes that have sprouted--works well for me!!
