It was an exciting day in the backyard.  Yesterday the kids and I harvested the last of our winter garden and started preparing the soil for our spring planting.  We ended up with 10 1/4 lbs potatoes, 7 3/4 lbs carrots and 5 lbs beets!!!  This year was our first attempt at growing potatoes and it was awesome.  It is so exciting to dig your hands into the dirt and feel all the potatoes underground.  I got our “seed potatoes” from a great farm in Colorado.  You can order on-line or give them a call and they’ll ship to you.  I’ve called the farm twice with questions about growing & harvesting potatoes and both times I was given great advice.  www.ronnigers.com
