More Gardening

Lea and I managed to plant three rows of potatoes (all the 'Hamlet' ones) Sunday morning, and we covered them with a clear plastic 'tarpaulin' to 1) create a greenhouse effect, heating up the soil a bit faster, and 2) to provide protection from frost, should the thermometer drop below 0 degrees Celcius.

This morning, I dug through another strip of the veggie garden, now leaving only about one third of it to be done.

If you wonder about the small white dots, it is fertilizer pellets I have spread to provide nutrition for the rest of the potatoes, and whatever vegetables we decide to grow.
