This past week, we:
Started the sweet potato slip bed. We save the best shaped sweet potatoes all winter, bury them under sand and then cover it with wire mesh and a plastic tarp. Once the bed heats up and the potatoes start to sprout we will remove the plastic. These little sprouts are what we plant to get sweet potatoes!
We potted up tomatoes into 4 – inch soil blocks (since they are getting too big for the smaller blocks, but it is still too cold to plant them).
Jesse and I put up plant variety markers in our own garden.
We cut up our seed potatoes and planted nearly a quarter acre. Yukon Gold, Kennebec, and Red Lasoda.
And tonight it is supposed to FROST! Oh, spring.
