I planted the potatoes at one end of the squash bed. Not much, just two rows of Red Pontiac and one row of Kennebec. I probably could have left them grow another week, but the winter squash is demanding more space, and anyway I was worred that if the voles were active then they would do more damage than the potatoes would grow in that time.
I attached a trellis to the two corner posts and carefully laid the squash vines over the ground. They look a little ragged because their stems have been turned but in a week's time they should completely cover this area.
As for the potatoes - no rodent damage! These are some of the nicest potatoes I've ever grown. The Kennebecs weighed 13 pounds. Assuming that the Red Pontiacs weighed at least twice that much, I call it a 40 pound potato harvest. Can't wait to make a green bean and potato stew.
