22 People Share How They Returned Home After Quarantine Only To Find Potatoes Taking Over The Kitchen With Their Mighty Sprouts
When it comes to nature, it can give important lessons in life. One important lesson if given than would be its resilience to survive even in the most unfavorable condition. Check out these pictures shared by people of their house where potatoes decided to continue with life and survive in the most uncomfortable settings, but this is nature we are talking about!
You can never stop nature from its action. This was proved when Donna Porée (@donna9p) locked up her apartment to quarantine with her husband and left behind a sack of potatoes. But who knew the potatoes decided not to rot and somehow found a source of life even in that closed apartment. The potatoes survived the locked apartment for 3 months.
When Donna got back home, she was surprised over the progress of those stubborn potatoes, "It's very surprising but the potatoes have punctured through the joints of my kitchen."

Impressed by their immense will to survive and live, Donna decided against eating or throwing away the potatoes and simply replanted them again. "I carefully removed them from my apartment and replanted them in a vegetable patch outside," Donna explained.
In the process of doing so, there was one more thing that needed to be taken care of. "When I was relocating the potatoes, I couldn't help myself and measured their sprouts. To my amazement, some were almost 1 meter (3.3 feet) long!"
