Needless to say, the garden is on hold, I am glad to still have a semblance of a driveway, and I feel something like a fish. We did manage to get our potatoes planted on the Friday before Resurrection Day (I know some of you call it "Good Friday", but I'm not crazy about that term). Anyway, the rain washed through them and uncovered a bunch, but we covered them back up. They are up fine now. We also planted 275 strawberry plants and 25 raspberry canes. We fenced the berry patch to keep out critters.
As far as anything else, we haven't planted it yet (not even cabbage, broccoli, or peas). Oh well, every year is different - maybe I can grow them as fall crops.
|We planted about 40 pounds each of Red Pontiac and Kennebec Potatoes|
|Just after planting - notice the lack of gulleys and washover - just before the little monsoon season!|
|Potato patch today, still not very dry, but I did heel them up a little last week. Notice how washed the ground is on this side of the row markers. We got 10 rows out of about 80 pounds of seed potatoes.|
|Our little berry patch. It has 25 raspberry plants, 4 blueberry plants, and 275 strawberry plants. I am thankful that it didn't wash away!|
