I planted a large bed of potatoes today. I'll have to list the types. I have some from Germany, South America, Denmark, and Scotland. I have red white and blue potatoes, big and small. I first loosened the soil, added peat moss, laid the potatoes on the peat moss, then put straw down, then finally mulch. I'll keep putting straw and soil down as the plants grow. It should give me a super crop of gourmet potatoes. Nicole planted seedlings in the next raised bed. We should get good kale, spinach, lettuce, onions and carrots(all started from seeds). Dad is helping us fix our well. Mom is trimming my box wood and my herbs. It's such a beautiful day to be outside. The sunshine really makes me happy!
