I helped dig a potato bed today! Went out to Seal Cove to spend the afternoon with some friends… we dug up and sifted a respectable amount of soil, moved the rocks to the rock pile, tipped the soil back into the hole, and planted last year’s happily sprouted spuds. And a few onions, because why not.


There were more seed potatoes than could fit in the patch, so I took some home with me. I’ve got purple and white varieties. Last year’s potato bed is now the lettuce-peas-beets-chard-rhubarb-garlic-nasturtium-broccoli-etc bed, but I’m building another raised bed and have a gaggle of containers and bags kicking around. They’ll get shoved in some dirt somewhere.
