I built a new raised bed for potatoes using old corrugated barn roofing and electric fence posts. It won’t win any awards for beauty, that’s for sure! When it comes time to ‘dig’ the spuds, I’ll just remove one side and let ’em come rolling out to Daddy! I have 16 Russet seeds in there. I also, for the first time, quartered and seared them, so we have a whole new experiment going on with this bed. All of my potato crop is set up to ‘hill’ this year. That’s a first for me. I’m hoping, by using a hilling process, to double my yield from last year. I estimate that I can hill these another two feet!
