The BEST potato year ever!
When I came in, just now, I was dripping sweat from my face and I took the picture and sat down here. I am cooling off with my little friend in my lap. She is 13 years old now, and beginning to show her age.
Many crops did poorly, although for the two of us, we had plenty to eat and share, but a lot of work was wasted. However, the potatoes did wonderfully. I guess they like rain!
Next year, I am going to start trying the permanent mulch system. Some call it "Back to Eden" or "The Ruth Stout Method." It will be a learning process, but will at least avoid some of the problems I've had this year.
