We can be quite sure that we’ll never go short of potatoes.
After getting the ground ready yesterday – drawing the furrows ready for planting today – all I had to do today was to put some sharp sand in the bottom of each furrow, then slug pellets and finally plant my potatoes.
My very first earlies are already growing in pots in the back garden – Swift and Rocket.
On the allotment I have:
Valor – late maincrop; Setanta – maincrop; Kestrel – second early and Ratte – early maincrop.
