    I have potatoes growing in last years patch, from some left behind and unharvested. They look healthy, will they give a reasonable crop or should I pull them and put new seed potatoes in?

    Water the garden the day before you are going to plant the seeds. Put the seeds in a glass of water the night before you are going to plant them. Plant the seeds the next day and give a light wate...

    Strawberries are shallow rooted so keep the water up to them. Check the soil to see if it is dry or wet. A good watering 3 times a week. Later in the year they will send out new runners.
