I was once given a similar contraption, it was green and had a footplate above the horizontal bar at the bottom - I was told you had to stand on it to get the prongs into the ground - shame I wasn't as heavy then as I am now  - it was jolly hard work - I didn't get custody of it - I wonder what the ex did with it  he certainly doesn't tend his lawn with it

Potatoes grow tubers from the stem if those are buried (or partially so) and tubers turn green then purple on exposure to sunlight.  I think that's what has happened here.

I agree - small potatoes.

I leave it alone until the leaves have gone brown and withered, then I pull them off.  You might like to remove the seedheads tho, to stop it self seeding.
