If there’s a way, nature finds it. So when Donna Porée (@donna9p) locked up her apartment to quarantine with her husband, the sack of potatoes she left behind refused to give up and just rot. No, no… The potatoes had searched for sources of life throughout the whole 3 months of Donna’s absence.
When the woman came back home, she couldn’t believe the progress the vegetables have made. “It’s very surprising but the potatoes have punctured through the joints of my kitchen,” Donna told Bored Panda.

While cleaning up, Donna decided against eating the potatoes or throwing them away. After all, their tremendous will to live demanded something a little more respectful. “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!”
After seeing Donna’s pics, people started sharing their own photos of accidental potato sprouts.
