A final surprise for the spring

Yesterday it rained fairly hard, which put a literal as well as figurative damper on my plans for the potato patch. Things did dry out enough by the end of the day to allow me to give the plot a quick inspection. That was when the patch delivered its most recent surprise: the next-to-last set, timidly pushing its way through the soil. It was a moment for celebration, that small set of leaves. Out of what would have been had come many bits of hope. Against my own expectations, only one set failed to sprout, which from my gardening experience, isn’t half bad even for potato sets that are intended for planting, let alone ones that are literally salvaged from the trash.
Who says spring doesn’t bring hope?
