I am always nervous until the first potato sprouts appear. What if I killed the potatoes? What if I didn't plant them right? (As if there was a way to plant a potato wrong... Okay, there is, but really?)
So I have anxiously examining the potato patch for sprouts. Thursday, finally, in the mud, I found some! There are plenty more still to sprout, and the grass is kicking tail, but I don't weed until enough sprouts are up that I know I won't hack any.
