Stephanie sent me a few clutch photos to describe what’s happening over in Veggieland.
First, there are potatoes to be planted. I never knew before this whole adventure that the way to plants potatoes…is by planting actual cut-up or whole potatoes.
Check it out:
Here is the crew hard at work getting them in the ground.
Can’t wait for these tubers to be ready. Another thing I didn’t know until last year’s harvest was that you have to cure potatoes for a couple of weeks for them best to keep and be stored in the cellar. The new potatoes wont keep and must be eaten right away. But the cured potatoes will keep for a long, long time. The smell in your potato-and-onion drawer will let you know exactly how long. Believe me, I’ve tested the limits.
Also being planted is broccoli. This contraption, which looks like an animal watering contraption, is actually used in this case to transplant broccoli.
Above is Justin giving the thumbs-up on the process.
