I think spring is here – I hope it is, the dates are telling me but what do I know? I’m sure our climate is changing.
Anyway, I managed to prepare the ground yesterday for planting my first lot of potatoes – Kestrel, so today I went to the allotment with my 20 chitted spuds and a tape measure – this year I will do things by the rules. The book says 18 inches between rows of first earlies so 18 inches it is! It worked just right, I’ve got two rows of potatoes in the ground.
This done, sowing beetroot, carrots and different radishes was next.
The ground was not at all too wet, just right so I have high hopes for a decent harvest.
Onwards and upwards.
