OK...so my potatoes are doing so much better than I ever imagined! Considering I've never grown this vegetable before, I'm very happy with how well this crop is doing.
Today was time for the 2nd step of growing potatoes. This is not rocket science either. It's simply a matter of mounding dirt up and around the plant. Remember, the plants are in 10" trenches. And I initially added 4" of compost around each tuber. So I simply added about six inches of rich compost around each of the plants and then watered them thoroughly. And that's it. See I told you this was not rocket science.
I did all this under the watchful eye of my best old boy Tyson. He is my constant garden companion and I love him to death.
