Gardening lore says that you should plant potatoes on St. Patrick’s day. Matthew planted exactly one week early this year.
This year, we saved our own seed potatoes. This basically means we selected some of each variety from last year’s crop, set them aside (so they didn’t get eaten), and then, a few weeks before planting, let the eyes grow.
They planted 25 pounds of potatoes in one morning.
Happy St. Patrick’s day [tomorrow]!
