Potatoes in Progress

by Albert Brian Vick,  Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, Community Kitchen Garden Coordinator

With the help of volunteers Laurel & Yevonne on Saturday, the potato patch in the Lewis Ginter Community Kitchen Garden received some TLC. Weeding, mulching & feeding were the primary tasks. Laurel & Yevonne also started four trays of seedlings for the garden.

We were delighted to confirm this wasn't a Colorado Potato Beetle.
