I’m officially at capacity in the tater bins now!!! If you remember from the last garden update, I was *supposed* to link to a tutorial on this for y’all. Here are two links (here & here) that explain what I’m doing. {Basically layering dirt over the leaves as they grow, then wait, and HOPEFULLY harvest potatoes!!} I’m feeling pretty optimistic now–the leafy parts of the potato have TAKEN OFF!!! I’ve mounded the dirt up just about as far as I can. According to this article it should be a total of 10 weeks to new potatoes, which means the harvest should be in another 6 weeks or so! I know I shouldn’t count my potatoes before they’ve been harvested, but if this works, I am so hooked and will DEFINITELY be doing a larger scale planting next season.

I grew all those greens!!!                                                                                                                   {red romaine, green romaine, curly mustard, green onion, dill weed}

For those of you who followed my garden news last summer, you’ll chuckle at this picture. I just couldn’t leave my poor root vegetables alone! Patience is NOT easy, but I’m learning.

TOMATOES!

(no fruit yet but just you wait!!!)

The first RASPBERRIES!!!!

I got TWO raspberry plants for $3.99 at Bi-Lo last week. I got 2 ferns and a hops plant each for 5 BUCKS at Ingles on Friday. Check your stores–places are trying to move this stuff on and there are some crazy good deals right now.

How are your gardens coming along?

Have you snagged any awesome plant bargains?

Are you harvesting anything yet?
