EVERYONE knows potatoes have eyes, but what about a heart?

It's a possibilty, according to South Grafton resident Patty McDonald.

She visited The Daily Examiner office yesterday to let us in on what made her Valentine's Day a little sweeter this year, and it came in the unlikely form of a root vegetable.

Ms McDonald said she opened a bag of potatoes on February 14 and pulled the first one out to find it was in the shape of a heart.

"I just laughed and shook my head and though people need to see this," she said.

"It could have been opened on any day, but it wasn't. It was that day."

Since then, she has kept it as a reminder of the little things in life which bring joy.

Asked if she would eventually eat the potato, Ms McDonald said she wasn't sure if she had the heart too just yet.

"Maybe when I'm finished showing it to people, but I don't know," she said.
