|Potatoes & Carrots|
This is the time of year everyone rushes to get their summer vegetables in but remember the average frost date is mid-May so don't forget to keep on eye on the weather and be prepared to protect young plants. Yesterday I picked up a few tomatoes and peppers to go in the garden but will wait until next week to put them in. Sweet potatoes are also waiting in the wings. I started mine (well, they really started on their own) from grocery store potatoes. The roots have really started to grow the last few days with the warm weather. Sweet potatoes grow well here and boy are they good eating! I don't have quite the same luck with regular potatoes. This year though they are looking really good so I have my fingers crossed that I will be feasting on them soon.
