Potatoes tell when they are ready to harvest. The ground near the roots starts to break apart and the leaves fall off to the sides.
Potatoes and onions now with most every meal. Fresh from the ground produce also shared with neighbors.
Two years ago the potatoes rotted in the ground from the heavy rains. Last year the bugs won. This year, "pass the butter and salt, please."
THE ERUPTION OF MOUNT ST. HELENS
Found on the Feral Irshman
A great look back in time. I remember that folks could not drive the I-5 freeway due to clogging of the engine air filters.
SATURN V LAUNCH Excellent video/sound found on The Daily Time Waster
Another planting season is ahead of me. What to plant? Will ready the emptied containers, freshen the dirt and put some more seeds in the ground.
Appreciate the visit this week.
I was SCUBA diving in the San Juans, and we had to drive back home to Oregon just after the second ash eruption. Very Surreal. Cleaned our auto air filters with air from SCUBA tanks.ReplyDelete
