Gardens 2023

It's ground engaging time. Seeds, manure, soil, and everything that goes with them. But that's not all. Cutting and hauling wood, chainsaws and the works!

Gardens 2023

Post by JSinMO »

I hope it’s ok if I start this years garden thread. It seems early but potato planting is right around the corner!
Got our seed potatoes today, going with 10LBS of Kennebecks, and 5 LBS of Yukon Gold this year.
Also picked up white and red onion sets, and the seeds for the rest of garden. I’m looking forward to a good season!
I hope you’re all getting ready to plant!

Hehe Jeff. Jumpins it’ll be 3 months here yet before the last frost could occur. But I have been thinking about the garden. I’ll be planting less again this year. Gettin to old to dig potatoes with shovel. But frost won’t bother potatoes thou. Kennebecks and Yukon gold are great potatoes.

In this area we always planted potatoes on St. Patrick’s Day. Last year was way to wet and cold. This year isn’t shaping up to be much better! I wanted to be ready so I grabbed them while we were in town. We need some dry weather and sun!

I find it doesn’t take to long to plant. Depending what you plant I guess. I only mainly plant potatoes. Their easy. It’s the lookin after the garden that takes up the time.
Hopefully you get your favourite things in any way Eugen.

This is a cutting from a sweet potato that sent up a runner in December. It was in our cupboard , calling out, plant me, plant me. It will relocate to the garden late May.
