So, Kevin finished the raised beds in on our island garden. We still need to fill them with organic compost, which will happen sometime this week. It will be easier to contain the dirt and keep the weeds out.
Kevin's potato experiment is successful. Out of 16 potato seeds, four plants have taken hold in a serious way. There are two potato plants, in particular, that are growing so fast. Kevin has had to add another plank of wood on one side to contain the extra leaves he's heaping on top of them. We're feeling really encouraged... no mould, no grubs, all looking great. All organic, too, which is even better!

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
