From the Ground Up it: Potato Planting

SustainFloyd Director, Mike Burton helps with planting

We could not have asked for any better weather yesterday, with neither wind, rain, or mud to deal with, although I imagine there are some mildly sunburned kids this morning.

I don’t know how many row—feet of potatoes were planted by the students from Blue Mountain school at the Shooting Creek farm, but it was certainly in the thousands.

Hopefully, students from the public schools can come help harvest the potatoes in the early fall, and expect them to be part of their menu in school cafeterias.

  1. Great idea!!! And potatoes at that!! I love taters, cooked most any way you can do them, but I think fried has got to be my favorite….I am southern, you know. 🙂

    Keep up the great work.

    Give Tsuga a good meaty bone also!!
