Linna's Garden Journal) I decided to try and nail down my technique for this upcoming gardening season. It of coarse helps that we had some baked sweet potatoes for dinner tonight, but they weren't my own. These were farmstand potatoes and were quite large and delicious. I want large and delicious tubers out of my garden this year. And the photo? While looking for a an actual potato picture I came across this this little "sweet tot" and had to put him in instead. I can't believe how quickly they grow, these children.
Alright, now back to the vines.....the article linked by the title above is written by a Canadian maritime gardener and I found it to be just what I needed. Simplified. No-nonsense. I have been debating over raised rows or containers for the Georgia Jets. After reading this article and talking with my friend I think I will fill one of the new raised beds using the lasagna gardening method as Linna suggested, along with raised rows composed of light soil for planting the slips in. Why not combine multiple techniques, right?
