early potatoes

There is something so wonderful about the first fresh new potatoes of the season. We forget how lovely they are if all we ever get are store-bought. Here is a site in Finnish that explains how to grow your own and perhaps be harvesting potatoes by the summer solstice! If it can be done in Finland, it can be done here in Ontario. I should try to do a translation of the instructions in English...a possible project!

Hi Kati! How did you ever find my potatoes? I was very surprised to find out so many visitors from Canada and USA - thanks to you!

You have a very interesting blog and the spring has come to you already. I really envy you! We still have winter in Finland with snow up to knees. I can only dream about spring for the next month or so, in fact we often get more snow even on 1st May. So I am sure that you will get early potatoes in solstice time, too.

Once I found one Finnish blogger talking about gardening, I had to find more...This warm week is unusual. Our temps are usually more like 2-3 degrees Celsius right now. We'll have another big snow storm before the end of the month. May is usually very nice here, but wee have had snow in the middle of June.

Hello Kati

Just popped over the from the UK to read you lovely blog - I am really enjoying it.

Too cold yet here to put in my potatoes, we have gone back to hard frost with lots of snow forecast - so they are languishing still, chitting quietly away in my garden studio,

That is about all that is happening in the studio at the moment as I am pre-occupied with so many other projects - including settling in my new chooks as you notice.

Best wishes and I will back
