My potatoes in pots are thriving. Tuesday, I added more planting medium to the pot, because as the potatoes grow, their stems need to be covered with dirt. I added a mixture of grass clippings, dried out leaves from last fall, and some soil to cover all but about 4 inches of the top of the stems. Eventually, I will fill the pots to their tops and the pots will be topped with huge crowns of potato leaves and flowers.

I live in historical neighborhood in Indianapolis. I have a small yard in which I have traditionally planted perennial flowers. I love to cook and I want to eat more locally grown organic produce, so I decided (GASP!!!!) to dig up a part of my flower garden to plant fruits and vegetables. In this blog, I will share what I'm learning along the way.
