Hot diggedy dog! Dandelions are in full bloom now and it's time to plant potatoes. I dig a trench with a middle buster plow and set the pieces by hand, about a foot apart. Then I hoe a little dirt over the row and the fun begins. The plants can take a few weeks to emerge, but with a little rain they grow like wildfire. I hill them a couple of times, watch for potato beetles and leafhoppers, and before I know it I'm digging tote after tote of tender new potatoes. I dig them with that same middle buster plow. Nothing like watching those gorgeous tubers rolling up out of the ground.
