The potatoes are showing

early potatoes

The early potatoes are showing growth so the quick trip to earth up against frost very late one Monday night was certainly worth the effort. So it’s onward with the planting of the second earlies on the other field.

Three rows of Orla, two rows of Nadine and one row of Wilja are already planted on the top field. Plans were afoot on Friday to add another three rows of Charlotte and three rows of Carla to the rows planted.

Further up the field there are supports placed out for the climbing borlotti beans. There will be a row of dwarf French beans planted out next to those followed by fencing supports for climbing French beans, space for another row of dwarf beans and then final fencing supports for runner beans. Well that’s the plan, weather permitting and all that.
