Planting Potatoes in the Garden

Work in the vegetable garden is well underway. We already planted a variety of crops including onions, leeks and a selection of brassicas.

Most recently, we planted eight beds of potatoes. Potatoes are grown from “seed potatoes”, which are certified disease-free and specially grown in nurseries for planting purposes. Many of this season’s “seed potatoes” came from Irish Eyes Garden Seeds, a small family-owned business located in Ellensburg, Washington. Enjoy these photos.
