Finally Planting Potatoes

Postby PVF1799 » Fri Jul 05, 2013 9:34 pm

Looks like tomorrow, I'll be able to get on the JD - hook up the disc and get the field ready for potatoes. Our heavy clay soil doesn't dry real well, especially after 15" of rain in 8 weeks. Now we'll just need a decent fall growing season. On the bright side, the chance of potato bugs is now passed :D.
