Yesterday cooked the last of the harvested potatoes from this season. These were all grown in containers. Previous years, ground termites had gotten into them and once I got this years cleaned up, found that too be true again. This year I’d put down a piece of landscape cloth AND elevated the grow bags, but the termites found them anyway. The only container that didn’t get attacked was a solid plastic pot with an attached tray. Guess that fooled them.
Unfortunately, there were not a lot of flowers on the plants this year, so poor potato harvest. Will try to accumulate more of the appropriate type of containers for the future. Know I said I’d stop trying, but fresh potatoes from the garden are just SOOOO DAMN GOOD!!!
