G'day All,
For a change of pace this evening  I have made a Chunky Chilli Chicken Stew which is in the slow cooker & There is a loaf of  Wholemeal Baking in the bread maker & as a reward for splitting  & stacking another 6 tonne of hardwood  I have a half dozen cold James Squire fifty Lashes Larger( 375 mills ) throw downs in the fridge that probably won't touch the sides, or ease the backache.
           Regards Pete

Thank you for all the nice words.  I am very proud of my garden this year.  Last year was my first time and I had a very rough year, wasted a lot of money and time.  During the off season last year I did my homework and I'm glad to say that so far it's been paying off.  Let's pray the rain slows down a little or else we are going to float away.

Not quite right, 6 # of Red La-Soda seed gave me 114# of red potatoes, in the 4 x 16 ft bed, 5 # of Kennebec seed gave me 89 # of potatoes they were grown in two 4 x 8 ft. beds for a total of 203 # of Potatoes total

I have noticed in the pass that the Red La-Soda will out Yield the Kennebec potatoes, I would like to try a be of Yukon Gold, they don't have them at the Coop where i buy my seed, I need to try and remember to order some before it time to plant

Gyngirl, I think U are asking how i get the fertilizer under the potato seed, I take a hoe and use the corner to dig a trench as deep as i can from one end to the other end of the bed, I do one of these on each side of the bed, about 10 to 12 in. from the out side of the bed, put in LOTS of Triple 13, then cover it with 2 or 3 in, of soil, the place my seed on top of that, then cover the seed, at that point my Bed is back just about level, as soon a I see the Plants peeking Out, i cover?Heal them, with as much dirt that I Can, that leaves a trench the the middle of the bed, I place 3 drip tapes at the time, one on the out side of each row, and 1 in the middle/Center of the Bed, which is now a trench, them when the Plants come through that, and are about 8 or so in, tall, I add the last cover, I use composted pecans leaves, I just about hide the plants at this time, The vines will grow on out and cover the Mulch, i don't do anything else other than keep watch for bugs, Never had any Bugs this Year, U don't want to over water in the late part of the season, I can cause little white spots on the potatoes,
