The brightest spot in my garden right now is my Tater Patch.  Due to the unreal amount of rain we have gotten in the last couple months not nearly enough has gotten done. And you will notice far too many weeds, It rained Friday night so I ran the super Bronco  only an inch deep to get a few weeds Saturday.

 It rained again today so I COULD ONLY TAKE PICTURES OF MY NEGLECT.

Your taters look good weeds not real bad. Weather was nice here today so I worked out my little garden. Corn tomatoes and melon plants are looking good.

Here is the second picture. These ere planted about 3 weeks ago and just came up this weekend. There are actually some just breaking through in the foreground.

They are mountain Rose and have a rose colored Flesh, the next bunch are Purple Majesty and Have Purple colored Flesh and the farthest out are Dakota Pearls, not at all sure what they will be?

The row where you see the fiberglass stake are sweet potatoes and only 3 survived out of a dozen sets, I will be looking for more to replant.

The rows you see to the far left has Shallots, Garlic and several kinds of onions

That can happen if you get cold wet weather. I was concerned that it could happen to mine.

It is not too late to replant and I think sometimes they do better. My mother found some sprouting under the sink last year and I planted them in late June. They did very well.

I don't mind growing good size potatoes, But don't care to grow any that big. Don't have an oven big enough to bake it?

 Bloom buds are starting to show on my tators, so we'll have "new tators" before long ---  YUM!  ~~  Lowell
