Planting Potatoes in the Garden

'Tis the planting season, and the beds in my vegetable garden are filling up quickly. We already planted a variety of crops including a selection of brassicas, artichokes, rhubarb, lettuce, and herbs.

We also planted two large 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 High Mowing Organic Seeds, an independently-owned, farm-based seed company in Wolcott, Vermont.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
