Sort of gardening- growing potatoes

The potatoes are starting to come up! I have one peeking it’s head above the mulch.

I have been dragging triple used hay up to the potato patch for a month in an attempt to tidy up the sheep feeding area before fire season (not very successfully) and watching every day to see when the potatoes would pop up… and now one has.

The potatoes I planted in the yard garden have been up for ages and have just been mulched for a third time (and need more already). These potatoes get more water than the ones in the patch, and I think that has made a huge difference.

We will see if this experiment is a success.

  1. I am really impressed with your writing abilities as smartly as with the format to your weblog. Is that this a paid topic or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to look a nice weblog like this one today.

    • Thank you for the compliment. I write the content myself. This blog is a kind of online diary for me. I write about the things I learn while living in the bush and share them with others so that they can maybe find the same joy in simple things that I do.
