Yesterday turned out to be a gorgeous day, well-suited for getting the potatoes planted.
I put in 4 varieties of fingerlings, using seed potatoes from last years crop. I also planted a lot of Yukon Gold, using seed potatoes I bought. We have plenty of our own, but over the years I’ve allowed the potatoes to get mixed up and I wanted to be sure that we only had one variety. So to be certain I used purchased Yukon Gold seed potatoes. Hopefully I’ll never again buy seed potatoes.
I put in 14 rows in all. It felt good to be able to get that garden planted. With temps forecast to go into the 80s the next two days, I’m expecting to finish the other gardens too.
