Good Friday is our traditional da to plant at least part of the potatoes. Today was absolutely gorgeous. It was in the mid 70’s maybe even 80 in the afternoon and I planted about 15 lbs of potatoes in the back garden. All of the potatoes are going in the back garden. I still have 20 lbs to plant.

Today I planted Dakato Pearl, and 4 varieties of fingerlings. I use newspaper to help space the potatoes appropriately and to keep the weeds down.

You can follow the progress of the back garden and what we plant there by clicking on this link. When we start the front garden I will post the link for that one as well. We are also planning to plant a 3 sisters garden this year so watch for that too.
