Noel's Potato Patch
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Over the past several weeks on the Over 60++ Team we've had some discussions about potatoes (among other things)! Several teammates (including me) love potatoes! So much so they've threatened to steal mine from the garden. But, I did promise to provide an update to how the potatoes are progressing and keep a close eye on them to make sure none are missing.
So, especially for Noel, here's the pics I promised!
This one is from a few weeks ago. You can see the nice row of onions next to the potatoes.
This one is looking back towards the house. Notice all the empty places. That's where the vining plants will spread...all the cucumbers, squash, etc. will fill that in later this summer.
This one was taken yesterday. See how nicely those potatoes are growing? There's lettuce and radishes, some beets and onions visible if you look closely.
This is the weedy end of the garden, but there are a few flowers there that need to be moved and tended to. That will happen some other time.
And last, but not least:
This is Richard trying to hoe around the tomato plants left-handed! I didn't make him work in the garden, honest!!
Hope you enjoyed your little trip through the Iowa summer garden!! Come back soon, but no one can dig any potatoes until Richard says they're ready!
