We’re just getting started for the year, and way behind where we should be. But we at least got some seed potatoes in. Baking potatoes just don’t do well in our gardens, for some reason, but we’ve had wonderful success with sweet potatoes. This year we’re trying both some white sweet potatoes as well as a pinkish variety (can’t recall the name of them – got them off the organic shelf in a local market a couple of months ago and waited to see if they’d sprout as they should – and did.

We may be reconfiguring a significant portion of our gardens, downsizing a bit, but also trying to do more intensive gardening somewhat in the way of square-foot gardening (just two of us left).
