Well I’ve heard the saying about corn being knee high by the Fourth of July but how about potatoes that high by Canada Day!
Our very large potato crop is looking great so far this year. We’ve seen no sign of the dreaded potato beetle I’m happy to say.
By Canada Day two varieties were in bloom and by the following weekend four varieties were blooming. It’s too bad the plants start to turn yellow as the potatoes are ripening since they really are a nice looking plant and the dainty blooms sitting way atop the foliage are very pretty. We are really looking forward to having some new potatoes, hopefully within the next couple of weeks.
