Taters are in, had GF youngest Grand son assist. i hoe trenches, he's stick spacing and set seed in trenches, then we both covered and walked it down. Gonna hit next weekend with a weak round up mix(1.5oz>gal h20) to kill what grass is still in beds from tiling, before taters break soil. Have 2 more tilled beds to plant. one will be for sweet potatoes when they get here, GF ordered seed off internet, local sources haven't gotten them yet. Undecided on what to plant in 4th bed.
Job well done!!
WE figured about 340 tater plants should come up, if all seeds take. good thing i like scalloped taters with ham..Mmmmmm.
Gran son says... he wants his moms tater soup...can eat it everyday, well he might get his desire fullfilled.
