I've been digging potatoes the last couple of days. What I have learned: The reds have done much better than the Yukon Gold. Simple fact the reds are outproducing the golds. So, next year I probably will do all red. Been researching vegetable pits for storing them. Here's the link to Mother Earth.

Tomatoes in bales
Tomatoes in the ground
Tomatoes in self watering buckets
Due to the overwhelming germination rate I had on the both the tomatoes and peppers, we have had to branch out on where we could plant them. We have tomatoes in buckets, in the ground and in bales. We have at least 20 tomatoes setting as well as the peppers are starting to bloom! I plan on getting a dehydrator to dry some of the peppers and possibly the tomatoes. I also plan to do some refrigerator pickled peppers. Good grief if they all produce, we will be opening up a road side stand to sell the kidding..I'm serious! And what about that sunflower? Courtesy of the birds and it has to the nicest one ever!
