Here’s the Big Potato Bed Of Huge Potatoeyness. Also known as part of my former driveway.
This is the first time I’ve attempted growing a bed of this size. I’m not sure how it’ll do, being that this year had some weird late cold – and now it’s hot – but we’ll see. Probably got the spuds in too late… I’ll pray they produce regardless. It may help that this area isn’t in full sun.
My daughter took the above photo, incidentally. Pretty good for a 7-year-old. Especially one that doesn’t get much in the way of camera privileges. I think I’m going to have to let her start taking more of my photos.
Here’s another one of our potato beds:
Our house was a foreclosure and the barn had been used as a garage and the ground in front of it was heavily compacted from being driven over. I feel bad for whoever had been living here – it was obvious they loved their cars. Lots of old shop manuals and bits and pieces left behind.
Now… instead of a drive… and since I’m not all that good with mechanic work… we have potatoes.
