When Dad was tilling our new garden plot, he promised me that it would “be like quicksand” when he was done. I have to admit that I was skeptical until I took my first step in…
With soil like that, it was the perfect place to try some root crops! We haven’t exactly had any luck with them in the garden up top.
Today we got a reprieve from the rain. I knew it was coming, so I was prepared! Yesterday I made my seed tapes and picked up my seed potatoes and onion sets and mapped out my plan of attack.
With any luck, these should yield 20-30 pounds of potatoes!
I admit that I was actually giddy thinking about getting my garden in today! But I had other projects and chores that needed to be done… So after supper, Andy and I headed out to do some digging in the dirt!
Now we just wait and see what comes up???
