Dug up the last of my Yukon Gold potatoes a couple of days ago. I know- you aren't supposed to leave them in the ground after the start of August around here, but I have pretty good luck leaving them in dirt. I dig up a few at a time as I need them all summer and fall, and get the last few out for winter storage now.

Anyway...

All of the potatoes were in good shape. A few had eyes ready to sprout, but nothing to make them inedible.

And then there was this one- the one non-round potato that I named "The Duct-tater". Yeah, like dictator, only more benevolent.

Three days later, the area that made up the Duct-tater's bill has already shriveled up. If I could have figure out a way to preserve this thing, it would have been listed on Ebay already...

Very funny looking potato. Great name for this malformed tater.
