I did some work a few days ago to wake up the winter beds and prepare them for spring.
I have also already cut and dusted the seed potatoes with sulfur to prevent rotting.

Three other families have joined me in this potato venture, sort of like a CSA here at the “Lafferty Farm.”
Here are pictures for kids and those interested in the process:
