I try for dark of the moon... but, it gets so wet here in spring... so it depends on the weather... I don't like mudding them in, they rot.

I mixed a bunch of sand into the soil. My whole garden loved me for it. Also, easy to "steal" new spuds from the hill.

Now Barb that would take all the fun out of diggin tators!
Our new life style ( not to be confused as a diet) dosnt allow potatoes or at least not many. Of course the yield of a bag might be enought for a year at our new rate of consumption.

Nope, Barb... tried the tire thing one year without good results. I don't often plant potatoes much anymore... I rather grow sweet potatoes. (taters are cheap to buy...). I have so many other things I want to grow and only so much area tilled up....and of course, the more area I till, the more I must weed....

Weed. That sounds like work. Barb finds weeding therapeutic as I recall. Have her stop by at weeding time. She knows how to find you! :thumbup:
