This year I'm most excited about our Purple Majesty potatoes. This is the first time we've planted these.
They probably won't be as good for winter storage as some of the others....but they're purple! Love that.
Another first this year, is that my Dad spent the afternoon passing on his potato planting wisdom to my oldest Farm Kid. I overheard some general how-to-live-a-good-life wisdom in there too while they were planting.
I love that even more than purple potatoes.
We also got our first shipment from The Arbor Day Foundation delivered today.
We had Dawn Redwood, Colorado Blue Spruce, and Walnut trees to plant.
We also had the cutest little lilac to get in the ground.
They all have orange tape tied on them to try to keep them from getting run over with the lawn mower when the Husband forgets where they're planted!
It's such a good feeling to get these things planted, to start putting our own touches on our new place.
Do you plant potatoes on Good Friday?
