Potatoes in grow bags

Posted: Today at 12:15

Potatoes need plenty of nutrients. If you mix in fertiliser with   cheap grow bags they will grow well.

Is this a weed?

Posted: Today at 12:06

A weed is a plant in the wrong place. That looks like one of the mallow family.

Not always.I have had some gorgeous days in Lamorna.On a sunny day, it's the best place in the world. I also remember one Easter when the storm was throwing waves up to the top car park.  About 50 ft up. I never noticed the houses up above the cove, I was usually concentrating on getting down the road avoiding other traffic and those unforgiving granite walls.

Not sure about the cooking bit at the end.Too many cooking programmes as it is.

I sat there thinking about Lamorna.I used to do a lot of diving out of Lamorna The rocks shown at the left hand edge of the cove are known as the Cannon site,some old cannons were found there from a Shipwreck. Doing a giant stride entry off the harbour wall was interesting.  An old man was walking through the cove one day,I was sure I knew him. Hello, I said , and smiled.He smiled back andsaid Hello.  It wasn't until he was half way up the path on the other side of the cove that I remembered.John Le Carre , he has a house overlooking the sea half way between Lamorna and Porthcurno.

Dont reuse compost that has had potatoes in for any of the potato family, including tomatoes, as it will spread disease.  If growing in soil in the garden, practise a three year rotation.
