New ground, never used for veg. wood ash- grow more and a dash of blood and bone mixed in with some early compost roughage/chicken manure all contributed to my first attempt. single dig and one earthing up has produced a generous result of mixed salad /chipping size spuds (both ends of the size population, some greening experienced!).Variety- Charlotte, seed from a visit to a French supermarket in March 2014.
2 rows watered by soaker hose twice a day for approx. 1/2 an hour each a.m. and late p.m.this regime was assisted with an occasional dose of my own horse manure liquid tea, (don't know the concentration of liquid to solids just guess work !!)
I am happy with the results and am now spending time researching the on going planting for autumn / winter / spring crops from this site given the recommended crop rotation plots.
