In readying the last house we had to put it on the market I ripped up my garden which was adjacent to my deck and put in new shrubs and lawn. Gardens like I had detract rather than add to the value of the home. I did this the autumn before listing the house in the spring. Lo and behold but what did I see coming up through the bark mulch around some shrubs I planted but potatoes from ones I missed digging up the prior autumn. I had to pull them up as if they were weeds.
