Planting Potatoes in My Garden

The beds in my vegetable garden are filling up quickly. We already planted a variety of crops including onions, leeks, a selection of brassicas, as well as seeds for spinach, carrots, beets and cilantro. 

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

Here are some photos - enjoy.
