    Awesome :) both my gardens are in low spots, so I don't hardly ever have to water them. The minus is they are muddy in the beginning of the planting season.

    I'm excited! I've never managed to plant potatoes this early.

    Next, I'll be planting broccoli and cabbage. Should have raised beds done soon so I can plant carrots then.

    It's oddly satisfying and weird to get everything re-established again.

    That's fantastic BB. It's got to be a great feeling to be able to get back to your roots!

    Planted the potatoes. Praying they do well, and the LORD blesses. We managed three 50 foot rows in all. Not as many as I had wanted, but not bad considering my gardening hiatus.

    You should get a good harvest from those rows. What kind?

    Yukon Gold, Kennebec, and Red Pontiac. If the weather cooperates, they should do well. That's the loosest part of the garden.

    I really like Yukon Gold. The other two are good also. By far, my favorite is Adirondack Red, or All Red: pink FLESH and red skin.

    Kennebec is old reliable here. It does the best for me in years past. But Yukon Gold are my favorite to eat!
