My yukon gold potatoes are growing like weeds. I hope they are making lots and lots of potatoes! It's hard for me to wait because I can't see them growing all covered in dirt!
My tomatoes definietly got a head start this year. I normally don't plant them until Mother's day weekend.
Carrots are growing so well this year. It's the first year I will actually get some. I'm hoping they are not woody or bitter tasting.
It was time to add the second layer onto my potato boxes. These potatoes are Red Pontiacs that require hilling as they grow. I'm excited to see the results from these boxes! We've been using FREE reclaimed lumber (FREE does not suck! ;D ) and the FREE compost when it's time to add more soil. It takes LOTS of soil/compost when hilling them in these boxes. I think our boxes are bigger than other's who use this method.
I need to try to get some more compost, I've made a huge dent in the pile that was delivered last year. Gardening is so much more than just sticking seeds/plants in the ground!
