I had planned to blog about my modified straw bale garden beds this evening, but after I got the asparagus bed done tonight, I decided I'd better dig up the volunteer potatoes that were growing in last year's potato beds. They say you shouldn't grow potatoes in the same place 2 years in a row. Doing that minimizes the risk of disease. Anyway, apparently I hadn't removed all the potatoes from these beds last year. I figured there would just be the plants and maybe the soggy remains of an old potato to pull out, but look at this!
I left the plants on a couple of potatoes just so I could show you what they looked like coming out of the ground. Aren't they beautiful? I don't have very many, but I think I'll take them to the markets that are starting up this week. Who would think that you could have freshly dug potatoes on April 30th?
God Bless You All!
