Planting into the potato cages/baskets

In the end, it was like a big cake of straw and sheep manure. Quite a solid little structure, I don't think I have to worry about them falling over in the wind.

I've planted 4 potatoes per cage, and I'll leave the remainder of the potatoes for another day. The potatoes on the left are the Saphire, and the ones on the right are the Ruby Lou. I'll be sure to label them, especially when there are more than a couple of cages to remember in the very near future.

Garden layout wise - I chose that site because it gets a good amount of sun. I guess I threw the tentative plans we made out the window! The cages could be moved if they had to be - and they're only temporary. When the permanent garden beds go in, Hopefully I'll put much more thought and planning into it. :)

  1. Hi Manda, glad to see you got your seed potatoes. I went to the sites about growing potatoes. It was interesting. It sounds like you know what you are doing as far as planting them. Good luck. Love from, Mom
