Planting potatoes and vertical structures

Welcome back.  Well this wee I am at Craig’s place planting my potatoes from Eagle Creek Seed Potatoes. I am planting Amarosa, Russet Burbank, Pacific Russet, Linzer Delekatass, Norland, Shepody, and Russian Blue.  At home I have a bag of Cara going and they are growing well, I have just topped the bag up.

I also give you a look at the trellis system Craig has devised for three of the raised beds. Basically 2 x 4 and 4 x 4 timber with 4′ x 6′ sections of wire used in concrete to provide a good solid system to support the vertical gardening.  He has three beds with the system mounted to the removal cap systems on these beds.  On  the fourth bed he has his raccoon enclosure (to keep them out not in) so he can grow corn.

I give you a quick look at the greenhouse setup, which he will be improving as the season progresses.

Until next time, take care and see you in the Garden!
