Well my foot us firmly down, no to tractor tyres!! I want stone build raised beds but no chance with the cost, just can't afford that. Knowing us it will be a long project in the planning and then we will do just before moving home!!!!! My tatties are in the conservatory in builders buckets!!!! The others are still chitting waiting for the sun to warm up the raised bed.
Unsure if these 'massive' carots will materialise. My last years early Nantes but 1.5ft top on and nothing at base. New soil so really did dissappoint but this year I'm filling a dog bath and will attempt a better yield!!
It has taken me 5 years to get him as trained as this, when we first got together he introduced me to the family as a girl who rides horses, can pluck and draw a phesant and knows varieties of potatos!!! No clue if I should have been offended, happy or embarrassed!!!
Still don't manage to get him to clean my fork and spade and oil them before winter!! I'm trying tho!!!
