Seed potatoes

We got our seed potatoes in from Wood Prairie Farms on Monday.  I’m very excited about growing potatoes in our yard, I can’t stand most supermarket varieties.  I must say that Wood Prairie Farms packaging is just gorgeous. It is so bright and colourful.  I feel like opening the packages would ruin the pretty colourful bags. But I will be planting them as soon as I get my ducks in a row.

One of the reasons I got my seed potatoes from Wood Prairie farm (other than their great reputation) was that they are located in Northern Maine. If the potatoes do well up in the climate of Northern Maine they should do well here in Southern New Hampshire. So I also bought their Spring, Summer and Fall lettuce mixes. I’m looking forward to having delicious crispy lettuce year round.

And I wasn’t going to grow any corn, but they threw in a free sample package so I guess I’m growing corn now too.



  1. I want to start a garden and by the sounds of it, I will need your help. I know nothing, and I mean nothing, about growing in the colder climates

  2. Hi Miriam, You should contact BettyAnn and get a picture of the pot she grows her lettuce in, you could even keep it on your deck, very handy for salad at anytime of the day! And if it work in Sept-Iles, it should work anywhere.
    Good luck with your garden.
