We had some leftover russets, russian fingerlings, purples and a few reds. Since the old potatoes were ready to go, we decided to focus on getting them planted.
We also wanted to grow more reds and golds, so we went to Gardensphere to see what they got in. We bought German Butterball, Yukon Gem, Russet Burbank, Red Sunset and Chieftain. We put them in the basement to let them sprout a little before we plant them. We'll plant them in a few weeks or so.
We're planting the potatoes in a different bed this year than last in order to "rotate" our crops. Terry dug trenches.
I snuggled the potatoes into the bottom of the trench.
I tossed in a little all purpose fertilizer and covered them a few inches. As they grow up, we will hill soil around the tops.
