Potatoes and Onions!

We received 6-1/4 inches of rain this past weekend and the potatoes and onions are coming on strong. To much rain can be detrimental to these crops, but our soil is well-drained and rich in nutrients.

Today we added fish emulsion fertilizer and plowed the soil with our Hoss Tools Double Wheel Hoe. Plowing the soil every few days keeps grass and weeds from robbing precious nutrients that are otherwise needed by the intended plants.
