|Sprouted Fingerling Potatoes in Furrows. 2.13.16|
It's too early to plant, but they are already sprouted vigorously. So I planted them.
These are in furrows, with the sprout barely covered with soil.
If they rot in the soil, that's OK. If they grow, even better.
This is 1/2 of a 4x8 foot raised bed. For 2 years, this bed grew garlic. Last summer and fall I grew buckwheat to rebuild the soil.
The other half of this bed may also get potatoes. I saw starts of Yukon Gold and some red potatoes at Fred Meyer, yesterday.
