It's about 50 degrees so we grabbed our shovels and planted potatoes today. This little bucket had been sitting in the basement and all of the potatoes had sprouted. Besides the redskins on top all of the potatoes were really tiny. They include some Yukon Golds and a bunch of fingerlings. We planted a patch to the left of the garlic and another one to the right of the parsley.
To heck with proper spacing, planting depth, blah blah. We just dug holes, chucked them in and stomped the wet dirt back in place. This kid is long overdue for a pair of proper muck boots.
The potatoes may rot before spring or they may grow. Either way, they weren't going to last in the house and we had a great, muddy time of it.
