Yesterday evening I harvested the last of this year’s second planting of potatoes. The second crop was planted mid-June and took up about 36 sq. ft. of one of our beds. It followed the first planting of potatoes in that bed and produced another 20 pounds of potatoes. All told, that bed has produced 56 pounds of potatoes this year!
A quarter of the bed is now planted into kale ready for regular harvest under a row cover. And last night after finishing the potato harvest, I planted two short rows of garlic for harvest next summer. With perfect timing along comes the steady rain to encourage continued fall growth. Life is good when there’s a garden outside your window!
