Potato Growing Update

Just a quick note to show you the progress of the newly planted seed potatoes.  Here is my original post about planting them.  I planted them on April 25th, and this picture below was taken on May 19th:

 

There are quite a few weeds in between the potato rows, but not a big deal, because I will weed when I hill up the potatoes–it won’t harm a thing. ( The red flower in the front is Centranthus ruber, or Jupiter’s Beard.)  The plants are at least four inches tall, and that means that I can begin the hilling up process.  More information, and hopefully pictures, of that when it stops pouring rain. 

Leave a comment–did you grow potatoes this year, and how much have they grown so far?
