    Grow Potatoes from true seed

    You probably know this but those fruit are not yet ripe, you need to let them fully ripen before harvesting them for seed.

    And these even more so than hessian potato sacks as they're a coarser weave.

    Are wild Cherries edible?

    They are throwing cherries at you round here this year, :biggrin: they are ripening faster than they can pick them. Never tried wild ones, usually the birds get them before they are ripe.
