Potato Update… Yay for success April 19, 2008

Some shoots! Yay – about 5 spotted so far but many just under the surface.



The large potato bed has proved fertile enough and some are now coming through (I always like this bit – well, the second time ever now!!! :> ) 

Whilst grabbing some other bits (more to follow), I also found some abandoned tyres so have started to build up some additional potato space.

    Ah, revel in the shoots! Someday I too will grow potates.

    Re: my un-American fondness for green, compost, etc. Yes, as if having a baby at home weren’t enough, now I am becoming obsessed with poop in the garden. Have to set up a compost bin at home so copious coffee grounds and unread newspapers no longer go to waste…

    It’s amazing how quickly they come up really.

    I can’t believe you got a greenhouse from freecycle, how great is that? I like the idea of keeping tally.
