About six weeks ago, I placed a layer of straw across my yard in a wavy line, edging an area where I had planted flowers.
I placed seed potatoes on it at about 6-10 inch intervals. Then I covered them with another layer of straw.
About a third of them came up. I have been adding more straw around them as the stalks get higher.
About a week ago, I placed a longer wavy layer of straw across the other side of my yard. I planted alternating sections with veggies and flowers.
Some of them are coming up now. It is so much fun to see all the new growing things.
