Garden experiments

I suppose since it’s only the second year of the raised beds and us trying to grow anything, everything is an experiment.

This year, we decided no more eggplants. We just don’t like them enough to grow a bunch.

I had a few red potatoes from the grocery store that sat on the counter for a little too long, After a bit of reading and watching a few potato growing videos on YouTube, they went into one of the raised beds a couple weeks ago. Yesterday, they looked like this:

I was pretty surprised to see just how much green they grew in just a couple of weeks. I’m excited to see how things go with the tubers.

While I was out, I planted some jalapeno seeds harvested from last year’s jalapeno crop and some butternut squash seeds from a grocery store squash. No idea if they’ll grow, but I guess I’ll find out in a few weeks.

The rest of the plants seem to be doing well and seem to have survived the frosts we had during January and February.
