Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

Potatoes in Black Plastic, no nights in black satin

Interesting "Grow potatoes in a container site. Unlike a blog, the latest entries are at the bottom, and there are photos. Scroll down.

The cool thing is that my lettuce I let go to seed last year from a mesclun mix has reseeded itself. I have some lettuce leaves already 4" long. They are obviously rather spottily planted, so I sprinkled some new red leaf lettuce organic seeds between them and watered last night.

Also planted red runner beans and mange-tout peas in my front yard where the other years I had indeterminate tomatoes. So I'll have lots of greenery on my trellises. Yay! My strawberries I planted in my back yard are all flowering... yay again!

OK, back to work! That was just a little find from me searching if black bins to put potatoes in was good or bad. Seems they often put black mulch or plastic sheeting over potatoes, so I guess a black plastic bin will be fine. I was worried that it would heat up from the sun too much, but I guess not! Right now my seed potatoes (four red, four white) are sitting in an egg carton in the sun so they'll sprout!

I am having fun!
