Weird Spring Weather

Saturday and Sunday's weather was cold. The high temperature for both days was in the high 40s and low 50s. Normal temps for this time of year are mid to high 60s. Saturday night the low over night was 33 degrees. The potatoes we had planted were all black. I guess we will be replanting them. Oh well, they are easy enough to plant. Cutting up the seed potatoes are harder than planting them. For those of you who don't know, you have to cut the seed potatoes so that there is an eye on each piece and that the pieces are big enough for the plant to grow. It's cool when you dig up the plants in the fall (to harvest the crop) you can see the piece of potato the plant grew from at the top of the plant's roots.
