Well, getting back to potatoes,
I found a source for Green Mountain potatoes, yippie! Picked up some Kennebecks and Red Norlands today. Tilled up the potato patch today (raspberry patch to on the left of potato patch) and picked up 2 pickup loads of leaves and pine needles for mulch to add to my treasure chest. I could have filled a tractor trailer today with yard cleanup. Gold all over the curbs. My sandy soil is starting to look really good now from years of compost and cover crops. The new bees were really active today. Gorgeous day, but raining now and tomorrow will be wet, too.
The long term compost bin. I'll wrap it in black plastic to keep it from drying out too much from wind and sunlight. I also keep it watered.
