Potatoes and such
Last year I was a Rural King, buying seed potatoes and onion sets, and started a conversation with an older gentleman (I guess I’m now an older gentleman too…) about when to plant potatoes. He had a thick Scottish accent and told me he always put them in the ground on St. Patricks Day. That was a few weeks prior to this conversation. Oh well. I did get them in that day and we did have a good harvest—three bushels.
The Potatoes we harvested last year lasted all winter and we still have about a bushel left. Most of them still looked good but some were sprouting and it was already past St. Patricks Day. I got them out today.
I also planted some Swiss Chard and Sweet Pea in the upper garden.
