Over the last three days I’ve been planting potatoes and onions. All the onions are in, about 400 sets of Yellow Stuttgart in four rows equaling 200 feet. Most of the potatoes are in now, too, and there are only 100 feet left to plant. There is still a pound of Red Adirondack to cut into seed pieces. After those are planted I’ll go through the sprouting potatoes in basement to get enough to finish the rows. Those will be for the chickens to eat this winter.
Next on the list of things to do is till up the rye so it will be ready for corn in two weeks. While the rye plants are drying up there will be time to plant parsnips, root chicory, gobo, beets, and carrots. And then back to finishing the trellises for the tomatoes, winter and summer squashes, cucumbers, and pole beans.
