today. Slowly getting things done. Three rows on left are Irish cobblers and the row on the right , not covered yet, are Norland.

No tractor or planting tool here at home to do the job, so did it all by hand with a rake. Not as easy to do now for this older fella. Rows are about 18’ long.

Still have 60 lbs to cut up and plant, but will use the equipment do that.
Noel.

I enjoy planting spuds!  Might be able to cultivate part of my garden today and maybe get some planting done tomorrow.  This year's potato plans include some unnamed solid purple(blue),  red skinned Sangre, and A.C. Perigrine,  white Netted Gems and an unnamed white I picked up last year at the local Good Will.  If I can find them, some of my favourite Purple Vikings will be included. as well as a few "finger" potatoes and anything else I happen to come across that tickles my fancy.  Must be my Irish heritage coming out, no garden here is complete without lots of potatoes.

I had to buy potatoes today also, after planting some, for supper. Jumpins, I hate buying them. Don’t know about your stores, but here in potato land they don’t put what type of potato is in the bag. Says potatoes, Canada # 1, but what kind. ? Or bag says, white , yellow, red or what ever colour potatoes are in the bag. Really beeps me off.

Come on potatoes, start growin.

I grew up on lots of fried taters! Can't hardly get full unless I eat a bunch of them!

Potatoes are good no matter how they are fixed.  Don't plant any as they are cheaper to buy in the store.  GF didn't mention it this year otherwise put in one row about 15' long for fresh little spuds.  Garden is all in, everything is up except for the Beets and Muskmelon which was just put in 3 days ago.
