Garden News and Summer Storm
Well the deer are winning the war in my garden, but the one thing they don't eat is corn... I have so much corn and I just love it! Also, I dug up the volunteer potato plant and wanted to show you what that looked like. I let it go too long and should have dug it up sooner. It was quite a surprise - the plant stretched out about 5 feet through the corn patch. Here is the series of photos...
|Before digging - you can see the plant fading.|
|Starting to dig - on top is the layers of paper and cardboard disintegrating.|
|The potatoes look good so far - but there is a surprise in how nice the dirt is looking!|
|They are huge! I got 5 huge potatoes but one was eaten by a gopher.|
|This is a monster potato as you can see by how it fits in my hand.|
