Antoine Augustine Parmentier a chemist and pharmacist,

overcame the potatoes bad rap for the French

when he acquired a miserable and unproductive spot of ground outside of Paris.

There, he planted 50 acres of potatoes.

During the day, he set a guard over it.

This drew considerable attention in the neighborhood.

In the evening the guard was relaxed and the locals came to see

what all the fuss was about.

Believing this plant must be valuable, many peasants

"stole" some of the potatoes from the plot,

and soon were growing the root in their own garden plots.
