Potato Farming.

This weekend seed potatoes were prepped and planted.
Perfect seed potato. Two healthy sprouted eyes. This one is ready for the trench.
Potatoes cut and dipped in ash, toughening the flesh and keeping them from rotting.
Of all the fruits and vegetables we are planting, potatoes are the harvest Tim is most looking forward to.
This trench/trough digging was intense, Tim was a maniac preparing the rows. Surely his excitement gave him motivation. Then he taught Ivy how to plant the potatoes "sprouted eyes up". Looking forward to mounding these as the leaves push through the soil.
