At least it didn't rain too much today, pouring now though. I sloshed through the mud and bashed in 7 fence posts that had gone wobbly or were only held up by electric ribbon and replaced insulators only to find b****y fence still isn't working. I replaced half or it last autumn, will have to replace the other half tomorrow. Bother, and I'm going out to lunch tomorrow.
I grew some Lady Christl potatoes in 2012 as they are first earlies and I was growing Charlotte which is slightly later. But, having read lots of good reviews I wasn't very pleased with them, Charlotte cropped better and I could hardly taste the difference.
Grew a French early this year, Amandine, but forgot I'd planted them so didn't harvest early enough so Charlotte was still better! That is the trouble with being over 27!
