Fruitcake they first earlies are in the ground the shortest but the 2nd and main crop are all in the ground at the same time the main are just in there for longer - so best to have a separate bit of ground you can have them planted near to each other

Like if you planted them all the same day you lift the first crop shorted amount of time and then second and then main the longest it is just the length of time they are in the ground for   

Sometimes people say if you don't have space for them all grow fist and second croppers as main crop are more likely to get problems e.g.. blight, you could grow them in a bag if not enough space

Zoomer yes I mean the GW mag offer with the other bits as well looks a good one

The potato show I go to has seed swap, plants, trays gifts and lots of pea and bean seeds - I got my peach tree from there last year lots of stuff to look at and get

we just take some food with us as they do not have much to eat there apart from cups of hot drinks and biscuits for lunch - so we take sandwiches and doughnuts need extra sugar boost for looking at all the spud and picking which ones to go for    

GWRS got my egg boxes ready as well
