Harvesting Potatoes

I know gardeners and farmers are supposed to be patient, but sometimes I just can’t stand the suspense any longer. I just HAD to harvest one of my potato buckets the other day. How to harvest potatoes!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 5/13/13

We’re finally drying out a bit here, and it got quite hot (high 80s) for a few days. I’m battling new bugs (aphids on the snow peas and whiteflies on a couple tomato plants), but the neem oil seems to be working, thankfully. In preparing for this week’s update, I was amazed at the amount of growth in my plants just since last week. (The above picture is a view of most of my beds.) Green and growing? Then all is well! Take a look!
