I have my seed potatoes cut and drying.
This is not a lot. Oh, it will make enough to eat through the summer but when you are trying to grow enough to sustain your family all year long it is going to fall short. I have one raised bed that is good enough to plant potatoes in and this is about all it will hold.Oh, did I forget to mention we now live in a swamp that got 1 1/2 more inches of rain last night and if I tried to plant potatoes in my regular garden spot they would probably float to the surface like corks! Not that I could possible get in to the garden! Nope, not even going to try! I would take 2 steps and be hopelessly stuck and probably lose my boots too! You would go out there and see the tops of two rubber boots looking like someone planted them there hoping to crow a crop of boots! I do have another bag of seed taters but....
I really hope to get them in the ground.Our cut off day here is February 14. I am hoping with the prediction of a long cool spring I can still plant them late and get some taters before the heat and humidity do them in! It is tricky gardening here.I am lucky to have some adopted gardening grandparents that give me good gardening advice for this difficult climate!
I also got some horseradish.
Texan was telling me how she planted some this year and how once you get it started it multiplies and will stay around forever! Sounds good to me!
This one is sprouting in the bag,I got to get it into a pot until I can get it planted some where!
Like most everywhere else our weather has turned off cold. No more working out side getting ready for spring for awhile.I bought some paint for the kitchen.....I may actually..I hate to even say it...paint! It has become a dirty word to me! I have tons of painting left to do yet..sigh. Maybe I will knit instead.....
