Made a new attachment real quick so I could set the potatoes in the rows, then covered them with the plow, the plow did not work very good, but it covered them. will have to do more figuring.  Have one more garden to plant. It is 20 x 50 feet. Old smoky will have a bigger job then. Noel

That looks like nice soil, no wonder P.E.I. is famous for potatoes! My spuds go in this afternoon, have about 30 pounds to plant that I bought new, and who knows how many of my old seed. I hoe the rows by hand and then cover them the same way, labour intensive I know, but I enjoy doing it that way.

30 lbs. wow that's a lot of potatoes. I have planted about 8 lbs so far. When I am done I will have about 20 or more lbs in I guess. Love potatoes. Noel.
Heard you got snow out west, did you have that where you are?

Sunday I made two potatoe boxes to grow mine in,,about 30" diameter.. Potatoes are cheap here as there is a very large tater farm locally.   I am not much into gardening  and mostly the wives  doings.. something to keep us busy after having to put down our 12 year old Ibizan hound  Jazz on Sunday....

No, we managed to miss the snow, thank goodness. It's quite dry here now, we could use a good soaker.

yes simple is the name of the game here. Tool bar is made up of a 3pt Sears cultivator, it basically gives you everything you need, the discs just clamp to it like a shank would if vatoring. move them out at the first couple of passes then in for the final ones. Ussally run out of clearance before I get to far in, so I need to mount them on the walking DB tractor.

Still thinking. Like your idea. Finding stuff used and cheap is the trouble. Noel.
