Spring Is...

nowhere to be found!

Still we are optimistic and this week we are chitting potatoes to plant. These are the remaining potatoes from last years harvest. They were cut so that each piece has an eye. Now they sit in the sun (that big yellow thing that sits in the sky every now and then). In a week or so, the cuts will have skimmed over, the eyes will make little sprouts and they will be ready to plant.

We are taking a chance with these little potatoes and planting them a bit early, hoping that any late season frost won't destroy them. Hey, I said we were optimistic.
