Funny things, these pooters...I tried again after your last message, Lily and it worked.

Beautiful song, thanks for posting it.

KEF wrote (see)

David I preferred the picture without the coloured vase. My camera isn't good enough to zoom much without loosing quality.

 

I agree, KEF....in fact both pots were coloured (first on green & white) with the camera set  on the chosen setting it just picks up red (and b & w of course)  hence my swapping it for a red one, just as an experiment.

Hope that makes sense.

No, still can't see them, Charlie.....probably because your second picture is still quite small when enlarged.

My aforementioned telephoto lens is 24 - 1000mm 42x zoom.

I mentioned telephoto lens yesterday....I took these two random shots (nothing special) this morning to illustrate the point.

The church in the middle of the first pic (just about visible) and the second is the same church zoomed in on.

As you can see, I took the shots while watching Sunday morning soccer.

 Btw, the church was about a mile away.

Bob is quite right of course, when I replied, I assumed this would have been done and was therefore applicable to haulms above the ridges.

Hi, Daffodilgirl.....my recommendation would be for either 'Swift' or 'Rocket', both super tasting spuds.

Regarding frost protection, if you don't plant too early, they won't need it. If we do get a very late frost, they can be covered with sheets of newspaper..... weighted down with stones or similar, of course.

Finally, when spuds do get nipped by late frosts, the damage isn't normally terminal, they will recover without damage to the tubers.
