    Thumbs up loose soil...

    started ot with a "hilled" row....dug down about a foot (in the row) cut just a small slice off and planted the other 3/4 or better fresh cut side down as it grew i tossed on more dirt...every time i seen the green comeing thur i tossed on more dirt...till i got to where the 2 rows i made looked like about 16-18 gofer mounds... when i water'd them, i would just run that "cold" water we got around here by laying the hose on the ground a fillin it like a beaver pond...because when i water them the reg way they would get SHOCKED and the leavers would look scared!...they got full sun and watered hard about two and 1/2 months in "to fill'em up ).....will try and post pic of 2 plants worth... this is my best go at it yet..

    Default Wow!

    I didn't get any that big. But mine were definitely bigger than usual this year.

    Did you get as many as usual? I usually get more potatoes than I got this year...just smaller than this year.
