Week 12! Po-Ta-Toes!
We got some much needed rain this week. Over 3 inches in total.
New this week:
Potatoes: It's our second year growing potatoes. Last year was difficult, the weeds took over and the harvest was very poor. This year, we experimented with growing potatoes using plastic mulch. Based on what we see so far, it works! Weeds were controlled, hilling was not necessary, yield was up, and the quality looks nice.
Recipes to try:
Corn and potatoes means its time for Sausage Corn Chowder!
