The East Wind garden crew took advantage of a nice warm day in mid March to complete the second and final potato patch for this season. The first patch was planted in early March and consisted primarily of Caribe potatoes saved for seed from last season. The second patch was a mix of two purple potato varieties, Purple Majesty and Purple Viking, as well as Kennebec.
Springtime is the time for new beginnings and there are plenty of things going on in East Wind’s community gardens. The garden crew is most excited to put to use our new high tunnel (or hoophouse) that allows us to extend the growing season and have fresh greens and brassicas for a greater part of the year.
