potato


There are potatoes growing in a box in M's garden!


And here's a view of the garden as of yesterday.  I think the water looks great.

    I wanted to make a potato condominium http://www.openlybalanced.com/potato-condos-old/ but lacked wood and drywall screws.

    While on vacation last year I had the garden kinda self sustaining, covered in mulch, which produced a lot of good growth, which I then cutback this Spring 2012.

    When I moved late last Autumn 2011, I liberated my vermicompost out of the plastic boxes into the garden plot, then had the leftover ventilated plastic boxes.

    Last time I planted potatoes, I lost them cause they were underground. So I planned on utilizing the available resources, which is a permaculture concept, and planted some potato eyes (then actually LM planted a later higher crop) in compost, in the box, such that the potatoes would grow within, thus utilizing the woody mulch and the boxes to containerize the potatoes.

    It is all going according to plan.

    The picture of watering is indeed pretty.
