Gardening in Southwest Washington State. Aiming for good food, sustainability, diversity, ecological balance. Learning from tradition, science, experience, and experimentation. Growing fruits, vegetables, trees, and flowers. Growing from seeds, cuttings, divisions, and grafting. Puttering meditation.

Potato "barrel" made from concrete tree ring edging.
The potatoes are growing fast. I didn't have a chance to buy more compost to fill in around them. So I used partially decomposed, compacted maple leaves from last fall.
They filled in around the potato plants nicely.
I don't know if this will work. I've read that straw works, so maybe leaves will work.
