Every single potato we planted last month is up, and we still have a mess of seed potatoes in the fridge.  These were planted in a furrow and now that they’re up nice and tall, we mounded soil up around the base of the plant stems.  So instead of growing in a ditch, they’re now growing in a hill.  This is supposed to encourage even more tubers to develop along the stems so we’re hoping for a bumper crop this year.  I guess I could toss those seed potatoes, we’ll surely have enough of these to save for next year.  We added some squash to the bed yesterday and left some room to plant pumpkins.  They mature in 110 days so it’s a little early to plant for Halloween.
