I have started my carrots and potatoes! I am trying both. Well the carrots, again.
With carrots, you have to have rock free soil. Not going to spend hours taking rocks out so I tried something else. Cut the tops off of lots of .5 liter bottles, drilled a hole in them then super glued them together. Zane and I then filled them with soil and planted the carrot seeds. We will see how this one does.
We also planted our potato. This is a first and we will see how it goes. To plant a potato cut around four eyes and take the rest of the skin off. Place it in a paper bag and let a "scab" form, will take about 2 to 4 days. Plant in a large container and cover with 1 inch of soil. After the leaves start to emerge, cover with another inch of soil. When it looks like the plant is dead, it is time to harvest the potatoes!
