Today I planted seed potatoes with my daughter, who loves potatoes so much. It's still cold in Osaka but I learned from my experience of growing potatoes last year that I should plant them earlier. Because my last potatoes, which were planted at the mid of March, should have been grown in soil for longer time. I strongly hope my potatoes should be bigger than last ones.
As I mentioned in my last blog of potatoes, I prepared potatoes in a popular way in Japan before planting them. Cutting into a half and Covering the surface of potatoes with ash powder.
Cutting the potatoes and putting ash powder on them was my daughter's assignment. She was so curious about the way of the potato's preparation asking me many times "Why do I use ash?" .
I believe her efforts can contribute to the bumper harvest!
