Imagine, two years ago this garden was forested. Woodlands comprised mostly of Ash and Poplar. Using our Goats, Pigs, Chickens, and jokingly, sometimes Dogs, we’ve managed to make a Garden out of it. This year it’s going to be mostly Potatoes. It feels good to have it planted.
I’ll leave it be for a bit, then add in some companion plants. We interplant Bush Beans, Green and Yellow Beans, to help deter Potato Bugs. In two years here, and one in Clementsport, we’ve not had a Potato Bug. We’ve also not planted on the same ground two years in a row! So, this year will be the real test, having had at least part of this garden in potatoes last year. Will we have Potato Bugs? Time will Tell.
It’s been funny to watch Roscoe this year, He remembers last year, how I’d get after him if he walked on the rows! I think, watching Him lick his lips, that he might also remember the great tastes we got from the garden last year!
