2013 Seeds Purchased

Planted 1st Week February:
  • Yukon Gold Potatoes in early February (Lowe's)
  • Planted Onion sets in early February- unfortunately didn't record the specific variety.  Will be surprised at harvest time.  Purchased sets from Lowe's.
Planted March 15, 2013
  • Evergreen Long White Bunching Onions (Burpee) - USDA Organic
  • Copenhagen Market Early Cabbage (Ferry-Morse)
  • DeCicco Broccoli (Ferry-Morse)
  • Red Express Cabbage (Urban Farmer Seeds)
  • Carpet of Snow Alyssum (Ferry-Morse) - Alyssum acts act as a living mulch
  • Sweet White Walla Onions (Urban Farmer Seeds)
  • Salad Fresh Hybrid Spinach (Burpee) - Spinach planted near broccoli to reduce bug damage to the broccoli.
Planted April 2, 2013
  • More Yukon Gold Potatoes purchased from Lowe's
  • I didn't see any signs of sprouts from the previous planting, so I am planting more.

Plant during the 4th Week of June:
  • DeCicco Broccoli (Ferry-Morse)
  • January King Winter Cabbage (Bountiful Gardens)
  • Don't plant Tomatoes near potatoes.  It makes the potatoes vulnerable to potato blight.
  • Interplant watermelons with potatoes.   The Potatoes will appreciate the "living mulch" of the vines.
  • Horseradish, planted at the corners of the potato patch, provides general protection.
  • Alyssum makes a perfect living mulch for potatoes.
