Wednesday Gardening – Potato in Containers

We’ve been officially notified that we’re to shelter in place for another month.

Month.  The garden has been our main outdoor activity.  Heather planted some potatoes in containers last month and they are exploding:

Potatoes in two large plastic tubs.

We’ve also prepared another veggie planting area in our caged garden.  A few things here, but soon we’ll add peppers, tomatoes and some beans.

The caged garden to keep our local raccoons out of the veggies.

Heather also planted a row of corn in the driveway planter bed.

Stay safe everyone.

  2. Limiting the news we watch and gardening – two great ideas for current times, I must say. My mother was a wonderful gardener. I occasionally plant stuff. Just makes me happy to see stuff grow. Sprouting lentils can be fun too. Thank you for sharing your pictures and happy gardening!

    In a container… caged in…. I’m sensing a theme here.

    Nice looking garden, Andrew. I find even with good soil, I still do better with containers. Easier to control!

    • There is a theme. We find it easier to control the soil mix in a container and we have some big trees in the yard that will just send roots everywhere to suck up whatever water and nutrition they can find. Containers help stop that.

  4. Driveway planter bed? That sounds interesting. I must admit I’m jealous of your green thumbs. We have a small garden, but most of our stuff just sort of goes, eh, and then dies.

  5. Wow, a month. And I hear there’s a shortage of jigsaw puzzles now. Dang, if I started selling mine online I could make a killing.

    Your potato plants look wonderful – so green and healthy!


  6. I don’t have a vegetable garden, but I do have weeds!
    Sometimes I go outside and hand-pull weeds to keep myself busy.
    My cats love the ‘shelter-in-place’ idea, because everyone is home.
    Today it was raining, so no option to go out into the yard.
    My husband turns the 24/7 news on and I try not to listen.
    Too depressing. I notice they rarely mention the amount of people who have recovered.
    All they talk about is how many new cases and how many have died.

    I wish the weather would warm up here so I can get outside more. It makes life feel a bit more normal when I do.

  12. Growing your own vegetables is such a great idea. In another life, I might actually try that. My sister does a huge garden.
