I put some early potatoes in this morning, I dig trenches, put a little bone meal at
the bottom scratch the soil around to lightly cover meal. I cut potatoes two days
ago, so that raw parts will dry over, as this prevents desease when in the ground.
Lay them in the ground 'eye' side up, and cover with a very thin layer of soil, and
as the potatoes grow, continue covering with extra soil , and keep
them heeled up at the sides so that they have soil all around them up high.
If you have lots of extra soil, no need for trenches, I do that so I have lots of
soil to pull over them as they grow.
When cutting them, make sure you have at least 3 eyes on each piece, or more.
HAPPY GARDENING, it's beautiful here today, going to work on my tan, very
carefully, I love the sun, don't like hiding from it, but I do it sensibly, a little at
a time, with a good lotion, not always sunscreen, as the sun is good for the skin,
just don't overdo.
We need lots of that vitamin D, as in the north, we don't have nearly have enough of it year round.
