Planted six 100' rows of potatoes today. Took about six hours including one hour driving. Plowed a furrow, then planted the taters, used the tractor to drive beside row while planting, then plowed again to cover them. Then replowed the first furrow back on top of them again. Then tilled between the rows.
Worked pretty good. Lots of fun too. Love plowin.

Noel.

Potatoes on PEI ????????

 

Who woulda thunk that ?  :smilewink:

 

You guys produce 25% of Canada's potatoes, and I see them sold down here as well.

 

Potatoes, mussels, & lobsters  .....What else is your province known for?

Hoping to give to the food bank, to help out. Not sure if they will even take them nowadays with all the legal things on the go. But I'll try. These were potatoes that I had no use for, so I figured, if plant them, and if they grow, I'll give them away.

You can do it here..even the deer processors give to the food banks.I volunteer with the local one as often as I can..along with Habitat for Humanity and Restore.

There are always people needing food, if the food bank can not accept them. You will not have to look far to find someone. I grow a big garden, but with my parents and 5 siblings within the county I have no problem sharing the excess.
