Potato Garden

I know.  It has been several months since I wrote anything here.  This has not been a priority with me, but I will endeavor to make it so.

A few weeks ago I bought some seed potatoes (35 pounds), and my wife and I cut them up as you must, and then I planted them.  I ended up with nearing six full rows of approximately 100 feet in length.

As of today they are looking good.  We do need rain.  We received some rain this past week, and that helps.

Right now all we have is potatoes growing in the garden, but we have plans for tomatoes, bell peppers, and some spicy peppers too.

It is fantastic watching things grow.  It will we wonderful to have a good potato harvest, hopefully around July.

Thirty Two Degrees

No!  I am not writing of the degrees or percentage of a slope.  I am however writing of this mornings temperature at 5:00 a.m.  That is right it was 32 degrees fahrenheit down here in our little valley on Flat Creek.

I am somewhat thankful that we did not have frost or any killing affect on plants; tomato plants and bell peppers that are still growing and  producing. That was due to the cloud cover we are having.  The clouds acted as a blanket of sorts keeping the frost from coming.  We also have gotten a little bit of rain.  Thank you LORD.

More is on the way; of that I am pretty sure.  It is that time of year.  Winter is on the way.  Only God knows what will come our way.  Thirty two degrees?  That is really not that bad.
