Ouch, I have just been reading threads on GW and found some disturbing information on my potato bins. First off, sorry to Shot with his ants and iffy production. Hope the other bins are better.
Secondly, I was informed that letting so much plant grow so tall with the light hitting the stems is bad for potato production. It may end up that I get no potatoes from my bins. I had read from Ciscoe's site on potatoes that you let it grow 4 inches and cover all but one inch. I swore the old site had 6 and 2, which is what I've been doing. At this point I'm just hoping I get potatoes out of the deal. I have little choice but to continue what I'm doing. Though next chance I get I'll burry all but the top leaves. Grrr to say the least.
Nothing much happened in the garden today other than watering. I went to a BBQ and played with the kids. I didn't mow but I have all next week and two weeks before my youngest's 2 year birthday party is happenning here.
Enjoy your garden!
