One Potato, Two Potato

Flowers are blooming and my heart is constantly overjoyed to see my garden growing. I am also excited about our plans to expand the garden this year. We started some seeds and we finally planted the potatoes today.

We dug four 8 inch deep trenches and spread  the potatoes 15 inches apart with about 1 1/2  feet between each row. This is our first year growing potatoes so we started out with a small amount to see how it goes.

We also put up the deer fencing to prevent these four intruders from munching on our fruits and vegetables.

 The deer fencing is temporary but next year we’re planning to put up something a bit more permanent.

 We already have some things growing in the garden. Strawberry plants, rhubarb, parsley, lemon balm, raspberries and the garlic that we planted this past Fall.

 Just a few more weeks and we’ll be transplanting tomatoes and some of our other vegetables. For now, we’re trying to take advantage of the few warm and sunny days that we are getting.
