Planting Potatoes, Berries and a few more

May 16, 2020

Today I took care of a few miscellaneous tasks and fell pretty good about where things are at. There are a few sprouts in the ground, I think the frost danger has passed. I cleared out a bunch of old raspberry canes. Then I transplanted two blueberry bushes and two blackberry plants into the front planter.

I had a bunch of potatoes in two varieties. Some were a normal spud with little sprouts coming out of the eyes, some looked closer to baby reds and had a long shoot of one end. I did the first batch in the North/South row in the alley planter box. The ones with the long shoots went into the East/West row. I did about four whole potatoes and cut up a few other to make about four chunks, and I planted four of the long shoot potatoes.

Then I did a few more plantings in the big garden plot. The peas and onions went into the 2nd row to the east, and I did the southern-most part of the row to the first post:

Pea Snowbird

  • 1″ deep
  • 2″ spacing
  • 2 rows about 6″ apart, 3′ each for 6′ total
  • 20 seeds?

Onion Country Hybrid

  • Sprinkled seeds
  • 3′ total

I did beans in the bean row, and planted some pinto and black beans towards the north end of the plot, between two posts:

  • 1″ deep
  • 3″ spacing
  • 3′ long
  • 12 seeds total
