Spent some quality time in my raised beds today - getting dirty to the elbows, pulling the occasional weed (yes, relatively weed-free this year!) & hauling out monster size sorrel plants that need to find new homes. A raised bed is no place for a deep-rooted over-productive leafy green plant.
I also just noticed that I had a slight case of potato blight - still need to do some research on this, but what I ended up doing was pulling out all my red gems & most of my Yukon golds.
Am looking forward to some tasty potato dishes in the coming week or 2!
I am already planning on dedicating one whole bed to just potatoes. Am just wondering if I should keep to one variety or go with more? The red gems were the plants with the blight this year.
