Update on the potato planting

The potatoes are sprouting! 

Colorado Potato Beetles are a common pest on our farm.  In past years we have spent hours searching the plants for little orange eggs, picking off the bloated larva, and squashing the adults.  This year we are putting row cover on the plants, in the hopes that the beetles will be unable to find the plants.

 

We’ll keep you posted.
