  • Ready for early spring edibles: Potatoes and onions

    I managed to get through the whole season eating only our store of potatoes from the garden because of the generous offerings of sweet potatoes from two other gardeners.  
    I love it when I can go from harvest to planting and still have a few potatoes left in storage.
    Home grown potatoes, even the old ones in their slightly shriveled state, are far superior then the kind that come in a plastic bag.
    I am really ready to get my hands in the soil and planting potatoes is just the thing to get the season rolling.
