Thoughts for Wednesday, May 7, 2014

The Russian Banana fingerling potatoes have started to pop out of the ground much to the relief of my father and I. Don't get me wrong. I know in the back of my mind that sooner or later they would sprout. But we're in a race against the weeds in potato hills. Unlike the other crops which have already been mulched or hoed, I had to wait for the potato seeds started to sprout so I knew where to hoe. Now we're going to town and working over the local nutsedge crop.

We have some seed left over. I think I'll plant it now that the other seed has started to sprout so that I get some carryover and extend the potato season.

 After spending some good dough on Garrett Juice Plus, which I love, I think economically it is time for me to start making my own in bigger batches so that it becomes more cost effective. The recipe is on line and I would like to tweak it a bit to enhance the bug control factor. Check back with me later to see how it goes.
