Tater Time

We finally found a window of opportunity to get potatoes in the ground today. I did not buy seed potatoes this year, instead we used the sprouted potatoes from last year's harvest. I usually do this about every other year. Red, Yukon's and purple were again planted. This year we planted them in the new garden. The soil is much sandier and since the sweet potatoes did so well there we decided to give it a try.

After work Doug came in tilled and laid off the rows. My sister is sharing this garden with us and her family was there to help. Mom was here as well. Many hands make light work and in short order 3- 100 foot rows were planted.
The helpers ranged in age from 4 to 72 years of age, four generations of gardeners!
