We decided to try something different in the garden this year, and are mounding dirt up to almost the top inches of the potato plants. I don’t remember any of my relatives doing this, but we have seen others do it, and decided to give it a try. It is supposed to increase your potato yield. The guys in husband’s Friday morning Bible study were pretty skeptical when he told them about it, but just the other day I drove past a garden where someone had done it. I suppose it would be difficult to do if you had a whole lot of potato plants, but we only have eight hills, so it is doable.
The garden is coming along pretty well, although it has been battered by the relentless southeast winds we had lately. We need rain. There are a couple of errant bunnies who are leaving all the greens alone. I keep my eye on them, as do the dogs who live in the on three sides of our house.
Given all the recent weirdness, stress, and uproar in the world, I would rather stay home and pull weeds all day instead of go to work. Gardening is a refuge right now
How is your garden coming along? How are you coping?
