For those of you watching my garden timeline, I thought I would share with you that I made my potato order today. Tnfarmgirl told me about a company called Ronnigers. I called and placed my order. It was more expensive than just going to our local farm store. I had to pay almost $30 in shipping, but according to Tnfarmgirl the yields will be well worth it. The past few years I have had a hard time getting my hands on Yukon Golds in our area. It seemed the day they were delivered at the stores they also sold out. Since I was always about a week behind, I never had an opportunity to purchase the Yukon Gold potatoes. That was my main reason for ordering. I knew I would get what I wanted and it would be delivered to my front door on or around the date that I choose. I have also always wanted to grow garlic. According to the buzz all around, fresh garlic is wonderful. Ronnigers also offers garlic so I ordered that too. That will be my first new garden experience for 2009! I also ordered Kennebec and Red Norland potatoes. The Kennebec is an old potato that should be a good keeper and Red Norland is one of those red new potatoes that we grew up on here in the south. They are wonderful cooked in a pot of fresh garden green beans. Give me a few green onions and a glass of sweet tea and in my opinion you would have a meal fit for a king. The men in my family would require meat to be served too!!!
grace and peace,
