According to the Old Farmer's Almanac , yesterday was a good day to plant potatoes , dark of the moon phase. So we got down & dirty ( literally ) and got those potatoes planted. Dh broke up the garden and got the rows ready. My Mom and I cut-up the seed potatoes on Monday , so they could dry out before we planted them. It was a little windy Monday , so that worked out well , they dried quickly. We planted 2 rows of white potatoes (Kennebec) and two rows of red potatoes (Red Pontiac).
Curious J and Little Froggy came to help , we were just about finished when they arrived. They got a chance to drop a few potatoes , play in the dirt and a ride on the tractor for Curious J.
We finished planting just as the sun was setting , it's suppose to rain for the next few days , so that should give those potatoes a good start ..... glad they're planted.
