I had chosen some potatoes from a garden catalog that were $7.95 plus shipping for 3 pounds. Fortunately before I placed my order I was in Tractor’s Supply and found the same seed potatoes for $6.95 for 5 pounds. Now this is way too many potatoes for my potager but much less expense (no shipping.) If you are interested in trying to grow potatoes, I will be happy to give you my extras.
Taking my dad’s advice, I planted peas today, St. Patrick’s Day. Since he was a champion gardener in his day, I am expecting a bountiful crop!
Already planted are lettuce, bok choy, cabbage, spinach, Swiss chard, arugula, broccoli and beets. This completes the early spring planting.
