Planting Potatoes


One of the big reasons for buying land and moving onto it was to be able to plant our own food. Upto this week that has been limited to a few fruit trees and herbs. Now we have planted potatoes! 

I do not know much about growing spuds, but I can learn. First lesson: potato seeds look like tiny potatoes. We dug up the earth and planted those babies. If the rains cooperate with our plans we will harvest quite a bit of potatoes. Not sure how long that will take, but we will keep you updated. 

Most likely we will not plant anything else this year, except maybe more trees and herbs. Come January we will prepare all the land for cultivation. Still it feels good to have seed in the ground.
