Such a joyful and almost completely effortless crop.
Take your old potatoes, the ones at the bottom of the vegie draw, the ones that look like aliens, the ones the kids laugh so much at. Dig a deep hole in the garden (or put it on a bit of soil in the bottom of a big pot or old bin) and cover it over with more soil. Every time the plant sprouts through, throw more soil on top. Continue doing this until the pot's full or you can't heap the soil any higher. Leave and forget about them.
When the plant eventually dies off dig and you will be rewarded with so much joy. I can assure you that children and adults alike squeal with joy when the little spuds reveal themselves. What you see above is from two seed plants, more than enough for a couple of meals. There's nothing like freshly dug up spuds, steamed and topped with lashings of butter and salt. And yes, you need both the butter AND the salt!
