- The Potato Crop.Potatoes are planted in Spring. Before potatoes are planted the ground must be well prepared. It must be dry and dug well and then the ground must be made into drills and they must be five feet apart. Then the potatoes are cut and placed in the hollows between the drills. Those hollows are called furrows.Manure is then put on the potatoes and the farmer comes on with the plough and closes the drills.During the summer they must get great care because if the blight comes on them they will be no good. They must be weeded and the drills cleaned.Aidan O'Sullivan got the above account from
Shanagolden.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
