BIG meal of grown vegs!

Posted: 02/07/2012 at 11:24

Sunday was the BIG day - the first of the potatoes and carrots I have ever grown.  Three potaotes (one 2 1/2 inches, one 1 inch and one 1/2 inch) and one carrot measuring a whopping 1 inch!!  Think I had better wait a few more weeks before pulling carrots again!

Its like a large grow-bag on end, so about 36 inches.  There are so many storks and leaves that they are growing along the floor now and some are going yellow.  Does this mean that they are nearly ready for digging up.  They are Charlottes.

Yes been earthing up, but they are growing in one of those potatoe pot things you can buy and when I reached the top, could not put any more earth on top.  Think it was just an odd few that were too near the top.

Went to inspect my crop in the greenhouse and there are large bright green grape like things on top of the earth.  Are these undergrown potatoes or an invasion of alian beings?!

When you dead-head do you just cut the head off or do you go down to the last leaf or new bud?  Thank you
