Potatoes, some thoughts about growing...

So this year I really want to grow potatoes!

Maybe a couple different varieties including Yukon Gold, Red... it would be cool to do a purple variety too!

I saw that Lowes had these cool Potato Growing Bags with a velcro flap at the bottom for harvesting!

After watching this video on How to Grow Potatoes, I got to thinking about the Feed Bags that I've been saving.  You know... the bags that the Cat Food/Duck Feed come in... they're made of kind of a poly fiber mesh.

Why not use these Feed Bags to grow potatoes!  It solves my garden space shortage dilemma...  I'm thinking that I may give this a try, that is, if my hubby hasn't thrown out my bag collection!!!!

Slowly clearing out garden beds...

I broke my shoulder last October when it was time to clear out my garden beds... so here it is almost Spring... and I'm finally feeling up to the task.  Yes, I'm getting to it!!!

Spring seems to have sprung (at least for now!) in Northern Wyoming!  Our days are lengthening and the sun feels warmer!

So, I only have 4 raised beds left to clear out!!!  When I'm done with that, I'll start mixing filling the beds back up with more soil mixture.

Oh!!!  I'm trying something new in my soil mix this year!!!  Coconut Fibers!!!  I bought a big bale of it at the Home & Garden show this weekend.  It's going to help retain moisture in my beds!
