Today in Wake Forest, North Carolina, three young people made an amazing discovery while digging in their backyard. Three of the Sexton family's kids were digging in a patch of yellowing plants, when they noticed that the "rocks" that came up weren't rocks at all! Being the good parents that they are, the mom and dad were able to immediately identify the find as Yukon Gold variety potatoes, planted just a few months ago. Whoo-hoo! Now mom's cooking them and we're all going to eat them for breakfast!

Following their discovery, one of the neighbor kids expressed her desire to "see a potato." I suppose she's seen a potato before, but not one this fresh - you know, with dirt still on it.
Nothing like potatoes with the dirt still on them!
