A couple of the potato plants had turned brown so I pulled them up and dug through that square foot to harvest all the potatoes, this was a nice bundle that came up with one of them. I'm tempted to see if I can find some more potatoes to plant in their spaces and maybe grow another crop. If all else fails I can just let some of the smaller potatoes grow eyes and plant them for a second round of yukon golds.
Tonight we grilled up some lamb steaks and zucchini. Was very good and I am now very full.
All three of the summer squash I planted in the herb bed have broken ground, along with a couple of the gourd seeds that I also planted. They will crowd the patio fiercely in the near future, but I didn't want to waste the space. Next year it should be all herbs around the patio, although I don't know if I can think of 13 different herbs to actually fill each of the square feet.
