One Potato, Two Potato …


Billy is happy to see me bring out a basket of potatoes to plant. Chickens love potatoes. You can plant rows and rows of potatoes, but if you let chickens into your potato beds, you will be lucky to see a handful of potatoes at the end of the season. Last year they had a steady feast in July and August. This year it’s my turn to have some potatoes.

These are All Blue potatoes. Later I’ll be planting Mountain Rose, Nicola, Satina, and Yukon Gold. The chickens will get their fair share.
