March 20: compost added to this year’s potato beds. planted 10 lbs kennebec potatoes (let cut pieces sit 24 hours before planting) potatoes covered with a small amount of soil and then covered with a layer of straw
March 21: planted 10 lbs red norland potatoes
March 22: planted carrots, two rows each: cosmic purple, chantenay red core, jaune obtuse du doubs (yellow,) parisienne, and tonda di parigi
March 24: planted one row of bleu of solaise leeks and four short rows of rocky top lettuce mix
March 26: light frost killed about 50 % of my pea plants
planted one bed of grocery store bought organic gold potatoes (feed store was out of yukon golds)I’m actually pulling these back up because the feed store got another yukon gold shipment in, and while I have read mixed things about planting grocery store potatoes, I’ve never done it before and would rather go with the sure thing!
Boys are each working 20 minutes per day to maintain beds and that is working quite well. Spinach is up between onion rows. I need to plant in the spots where it didn’t come up.
Tested soil pH in one bed–neutral.
I have a lot to do over the next week or so, starting seeds in flats and then trying to remember to keep up with them so they don’t dry out. This is not a strong area for me!
