Spreading Lime

Today we made great progress in spreading lime on the fields which will soon be planted with potatoes. Lime helps in the absorption of minerals by the plants and increases the soil's fertility. It's a simple way to increase your yields and maximizing your chances of a good harvest!

Can you give me a fact/info sheet on growing potatoes. I planted 6 varieties on our property at Cobark. They are looking very healthy but not sure what I am doing. Ive been hilling up the soil around them. I believe they take 3 months till harvest.
