|I sprayed the potato beetle infestation a few days ago.|
|You might look at this and think "Pretty nice potato patch"|
|It would be if all the green were potato vines. this is what one row looks like after weeding. While it is nice weather for weeding (70F and no sun) it is poor light for photography. I am a third done.|
|Some of the gaps have slow starting potatoes in them. I accidentally pulled one up and the cause for their slow growth is that I did not plant them deeply enough. They struggled to find moisture.|
Now I have a dilemma. What can I plant in the gaps? I am leaning toward root crops.
|If Ham Operators were beetles|
|Are there any entomologists out there who want to tell me what these two species are?|
Note: 12:20 and it is 79 and the sun is out. Mad dogs and Englishmen and all that.
I am 2/3 done and will hit it again later today.
