planting potatoes

it is supposed to rain this evening so i decided to plant turnips before it did...while i was out there i was looking at the bed of alfalfa and winter rye ( top photo ) next to the spot i was planting turnips and realized there had never been potatoes planted there i turned the green manure and reservoirs under...worked it with a hoe to break up the roots...then i added sphagnum moss, compost and vermiculite to the bed Second photo )...turned that in and hoed again...i chose eight spuds in peat pots off the deck ( third photo )...and i planted them ( last there photos )...if all goes as planned there will be spuds in july...there were more spud adventures...but that is the next post.
