The potatoes are in!


Finally!! I spent some time Saturday morning pulling the major weeds out and getting the watering system working again. It was quite a hot day so I waited until the afternoon when it was a bit cooler to swing the mattock and put the taters in. I'll do some major mulching once the plants appear.

And Pete has made a start on the 'fruit grove' - we're moving some of our existing citrus around and adding some more citrus & blueberries into more of a 'grove' type area (a la Jackie French)

Looks great! How old are your citrus. I have a couple I'd like to transplant, but not sure how to go about it... Mine are less than a year in the ground.

Bel - I have some that are a few years old (maybe 5 or 6?) as well as the new ones I bought this year. Ideally I think they're supposed to be moved in winter. Although at the rate we're going, it may be winter again before we get to it!
