We met at the community garden Saturday to officially kick off the gardening season. Some members had already gotten early plantings of cool weather vegetables in. This year my goal was to get the plot planted before July. All the soil amendments worked in last fall were well incorporated. A little quick hoeing and the weeds were gone. On the left are five northern red potatoes nestled in the ground. I'm hoping for a return of forty potatoes, more if we manage to give the potato box method of growing a try. Memorial Weekend is the traditional time for our area to plant out with out concern of frost.
