I've been thinking about doing this for a while.
|7 years of pots—a solution looking for a problem|
|2-gallon pots, fiberglass mesh, and a baby broc|
|Buried in the soil, ready for insulation|
|Just need a few more leaves|
So, now we sit back and see how they do. I really should have planted them a month or two ago, but I blew off a lot of my garden chores this fall while the weather was nice in favor of painting outside in my garden, which was one of the most fun things I've done in years.
As I dug the holes I found some subway tunnels, and lots of small, really deep, or half-eaten potatoes that I missed when I did the big dig. No wonder I always get so many volunteers every year. I'm shifting my potato culture to the west half of the garden next year; I've been growing them in the same rows for three years, and although I didn't see any disease, I'll rotate them for a year or two.
