Getting Ready for the Potatoes
Potatoes are planted under ground and need the protection of the soil to grow to their maximum potential. In order to get the potatoes to a good depth, it is necessary to plant them into a ditch or furrow. It is possible to do with a hoe, but it is much easier to use horse power. We had some students learning to use horses help with this phase in the demonstration garden. We dug four furrows for the upcoming classes.
