Can't say why some plants grew and others didn't . But it looks like I need to do a better job of digging the potatoes , I keep pulling ones growing everywhere that I missed digging in fall :lol:

That always happens to me too, Alc. Happens less with onions, but it still happens. The coolest thing was the year we had volunteer tomatoes though...that just doesn't happen in this climate, but it did that year.

I don't think you did anything wrong, I think if you found them rotted ,they froze off, as I said before we're in the same zone and we had a stretch of of nights that were in the mid 20's , reports are it got alot of the strawberries in Virginia, strawberries and peaches really got hurt here at home and they say that New yorks apple and cherry crop was desimated.

I didn't plant them as deep as maybe I should have because I was planning on using mulch on top as they grew , so maybe they did freeze out , Al
