Wow!

 I just got back from a short stint of supply teaching and went out to the garden to dig some remaining potatoes for supper tonight. 


Can you tell these were growing close to the compost bin? Chicken manure and shavings also go in the compost! I apologize for not knowing how to turn this image. It’s the first time I’m posting from my phone. 

It was such a good growing summer. I had the best onions and carrots I’ve ever grown as well.

  10. Grown close to the compost bin, you say? I can relate to that. Grass (sod?) surrounds a couple of our compost bins on three sides and when I mow I could use one of those mowers you see cutting grass alongside the highway. The grass is so heavy, thick, and lush. It took me a while to figure out why it was so different than that in the rest of the lawn. (I'm slow.) Those taters are monsters. Hope they tasted wonderful. I'm sure they did!
