Jonni, did you know that if you plant your potatoe eyes in the dirt under your tomatoe plants you can grow potatoes in the roots and tomatoes on the plant? My dad taught me this. Huge space saver for small garden areas. :)
And Lisa, these "tomatoes" will not hurt your potatoe plants or crop. It's just one of those interesting things that happens.
A person is a success if they get up in the morning and get to bed at night and in between does what they want to do. Bob Dylan
Even if you don't have tomatoes close to your potatoes, it's not unusual to get the potato "fruits". The tubers below ground are actually modified stems and not "fruits". They don't have anything to do with the flowers, who's ultimate goal is to produce seeds for the next generation (which are in the "fruits")

Sarah, how do you do that? Plant the potatoes under the tomatoes? When do you harvest the potatoes? We harvested out potatoes weeks ago and the tomatoes are just now comming on. In fact I just planted my fall crop of potatoes.
