Threw some potatoes in today
As silly as it may sound, I'm looking forward to having some new potatoes this year. I haven't planted any potatoes since 2010 after getting tired of fighting the beetles and all.

If I had lots of tillable land I'd have planted before now because potatoes love nothing better than a new piece of ground. But I'm pretty much stuck with what I have unless I start cutting trees and pulling stumps, so my spot was in a long rotation.

I've had the same garden spot for 30 plus years now and what took care of 5 still gets planted same for two. I can't imagine not growing a garden, that and fall hunting is what makes living a good life.

You need some chemical to deal with the beetles?

Is it considered a conspiracy if they really are after you?Huh

That's right the potato farmers never have any problems with beetles

This is sounding a bit like a street drug deal!

The weather has been good for peas potatoes and other "native" crops. The trees and flowering shrubs are happy, in some way this kind of weather is perfect for Maine. A couple of hot days but mostly what we enjoy being here. Too much rain, cool? I don't know.

Peas and new potatoes for the fourth, looks possible

Our small garden is doing well, tomatoes look good as do the greens.
