Potato Planting 2013

It has finally dried out enough for us to get into the field and plant our 450lbs of seed potatoes this year.  We had some friends stop over and help out.  We had a combined total of 11 children today all wanting to help in some way.

Red Norland, Yukon Gold, Carola, Colorado Rose, Purple Majesty and German Butterball were all planted today.  They will get ready in the order listed above.  Planting of other crops continues as well.  The early cold weather and now the week of heat and wet weather sure is making it interesting getting everything in the fields.

Today we got all Pak Choi in the ground with some kohlrabi, and chard also. We had to take the leafy plants out of the greenhouse yesterday because of the increased air temp. outside. It was 98 degrees F (in the greenhouse.)
