Seed potatoes bought, soil temps 50 degrees and more garden planning.

I bought some red pontiac, yukon and russet seed potatoes for the garden. S few days are needed to cut and let the seed potatoes dry a bit before planting.  My ground soil is over 50 degrees F. and most hard frosts should be gone after this weekend. Average March temps. should be hitting at least 60 degrees F. during the day. We are hitting mid 50’s at best. The rain/snow moisture is great but it’s getting close to planting season and farmers need some dry weather to plow. Even with Idaho’s irrigation method of farming the farmers need dry fields to plant. 

I checked the soil temp of my planters and raised beds and the temp. is 50 degrees F. That is good enough for planting potatoes but I need to cut the seed potatoes before planting. This weekend is forecasted to get cold so no planting outside is recommended. My grape vines are a mess but I’m slowly cutting back the canes for more are for garden plants. 

I don’t know why I thought my green house was 8 ft. x 8 ft. when it it is 6.5 ft. x 8 ft. . This is great news as the smaller size gives me more options. The foundation material cost will be less and that is all to the good. 

Don’t freak out , panic or try and time the market. You can’t time the market as the house always wins. The house is the FED and the treasury of the USA. Do you think they ( the PTBs)  will announce the market is a sham and you are on your own? 

What can you do? 

  1. Get independent of the cooperate food system. Grow a garden even if it is an herb garden to start.
  2. Get local with food suppliers and energy suppliers. Don’t rely on your gas or electric system from the local utilities. 
  3. Vote no all bonds and tax levies from the PTBS unless you get a good out come as an individual.  Don’t buy into the propaganda that most bond levies are for the greater good. 
  4. Find a local food supplier that is not the local Mega mart. 

You have to choose how you prep. I can tell you what worked for me. You have to decide how to spend your money and what you choose to to do. You should never let anyone tell you how to live your life. I might disagree with your outlook but it is your life too live as you wish. 

It may come as a bit of a shock to most liberals, progressive, Marxists, Alphabet people. Most conservatives really don’t care how you live your life.  Just don’t mess with our kids!
