I’m a potato farmer!

Well maybe not yet but for my first year I think I did pretty well.
We grow sweet potatoes, Yukon gold’s, and the purple one I can’t remember what they are called. We took the ones in the pan and got some rosemary from the garden and backed them in the oven yum! The best part I didn’t have to dig them up I just pulled the hey back and there they were on top of the ground. The sweet potatoes did grow down into the ground though. I do need to add a lot of organic material to the soil this winter to soften it up. We are also thinking about getting 2-3 small bantam chickens for eggs/ fertilizer/ bug eating.
I need to look into City chickens a little more.

My husband and I are also adopting with the help of CCAI and I often look at your blog because you often have interesting information...and I like to garden. At any rate, this post in paticular caught my attention because I want city bantams too!
