One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato ... Four

The two big buckets just in front of our wood pile are potatoes grown using the barrel method. The purplish barrel is something DH had around before we got married. The green barrel is an old plastic trash can cut down that was found curb shopping. There are two more full sized trash cans planted with spuds in the back 40 (feet that is not acres).
Unfortunately I lost my planting sheet that holds such valuable information as species, date planted, and cost of seeds/seedlings. So if memory serves me correctly then there are Red Pontiac and something with a starting with a K planted in each.
Perhaps I am more than just spatially challenged ?
Directly in front is yarrow that I bought from a church sale, then an old cracked crock filled with marigolds and then my Mother's Day Gift a pink clematis.

  1. The thing that starts with a K is probably Kennebec. They are a real popular brown baking type potato. I grew some last year and was well pleased. The ONLY reason I didn't grow them this year was because I wanted to try some other varieties.


Thanks, good to know there are other's with this interest
