What did you do this morning?

Contour taters

Contour taters

We planted seed potatoes this morning… up bright and early…and before it hit 90 some degrees…though we were already hot and sweaty after our first contour. Temps were steamy even at 9 am for our second contour.

Going in this strip are French Fingerling potatoes. Red golds were planted in the strip above. Yet to be planted are Kennebecs (if not tonight then tomorrow morning). These potatoes will be ready in the fall. We over wintered a previous potato planting (2012) by leaving them right where they were…in the ground. We laid a super thick layer of straw. Dug as needed.

We sold all our potatoes last year…so we are looking forward to having some for this fall/winter. So fun to go out and dig up fresh potatoes whenever you want them. The flavor is unmatched.
