Though it’s difficult to see from this photo, I filled a 5 gallon bucket about 2/3 full of potatoes this morning. We planted quickly in bad ground about 8″ apart in long rows. I am delighted that we have so many potatoes. They are so near the surface, however, that we will either have to cover them for the winter and take as needed or take them from the ground before freezing and hope the garage will be cool enough.
Our daughter came to visit today and left with 5 large zucchini (possibly to share), kale, tomatoes, and some orange peppers. In this heat, the garden is watered daily, one can almost see the growth of the vegetables daily.
Yesterday, our son and his wife picked up their new Abyssinian kitten. He is 3 months old and they have been a bit impatient to be able to take him home. He is the cutest thing, and has some growing to do to grow into those ears.
