Yesterday I planted Adirondack Blue potatoes. The best luck I've ever had with potatoes was when I planted them in a wire tower. Thanks to some leftover alfalfa, I'm able to give it another try.
Take a wire cage and press straw on the outside. Fill the middle with soil and potatoes. Slowly building your way up. I put some wayward chives on top. Who doesn't like chives with their potatoes?
I also spent yesterday putting up birdhouses. Every year I am hopeful and every year I am disappointed. I have had squirrels, chipmunks, and even bumblebees, but never birds. Maybe this will be the year.
Don't they look inviting? I hope so. As I write this I am listening to the weather lady talking about snow. Drat. Maybe, just maybe, she will be wrong.
How many bird houses do you have? Do you get tenants? Any tricks I should know? Hope everyone had a happy Easter.
