Potato Planters

fter my folks and I planted most of the seeds into the garden over the weekend, on Monday, my sisters Paula and Missy, came to help plant the potatoes.  We cut up last year’s potatoes so they had a few eyes with good sprouts and planted them 12 inches apart and 6-8 inches deep, with sprouts reaching upward.  It was easy to dig the holes after Dad went through with his old tiller.  Over the weekend we got the onions, garlic, carrots, radishes, spinach, leaf lettuce, rutabaga, parsnips, and beet seeds in.  The “transplants” are eagerly waiting their turn.  My folks start the plants with a longer growing season up to two months ahead in the house, and wait until the risk of frost is gone (May 10th) before transplanting them to the garden.  Check out the porch full of peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, cabbage, broccoli, and more:
