early June planting

This weekend we added some more plants to our land.

New potatoes. Some gaps appeared in our potato beds, due partly to chicken raids. So we redug holes, and dropped in already-sprouting spud bits. With luck these will come up later in the fall, perhaps September, as new potatoes.

Tomatoes. We made beds out of old tires, filled with topsoil. The rubber should hold heat well. It's warm enough to try these now. (Pic above)

An apple tree. Should bear fruit in 2011.
