So this year, even though I got a late start, I decided to plant some of my own potatoes. But, I never got over to the garden center to buy my "certified virus free seed potatoes". Did this stop me? No...
|Breaking Through the ground|
I recall Mama doing this one year when seed potatoes weren't available, but I'm not sure how that crop of hers turned out. I went outside today, braving the relentless, cold, rainy, wind, (argh!) and was so surprised that they have come up!!!
|Poor Soil, but well drained.|
Now, I will need to work some compost into the soil around them and keep the dirt hilled up around them as they grow. I can't wait to see if the grocery store potatoes actually produce enough potatoes to be worth the trouble. I'll keep you posted!
