A Garden Emergency and Lots of Spuds!

Most garden pests I can deal with but when it comes to worms… now that’s an emergency and a good reason to get out the pesticide I try to avoid using.
My little experiment I’m trying where I used 3 different methods to plant potatoes is turning out quite interesting. I thought the potatoes in the pots weren’t doing so good because I forgot to give them extra water. Surprisingly, more grew than I expected. The potatoes that we planted on top of the ground and covered with hay grew some really nice sized potatoes. We have yet to see how well the potatoes we planted in the ground did. We plan to dig them soon so we’ll find out.
