potato varieities production or vareity

What varieties are people growing this season? I've started to chit my first earlies (Charlotte) and have some Picasso on order as a main crop. Not yet decided if we're going to be growing any others yet, but we're going to be growing in large containers as they seem to crop better and it makes it much easier to harvest.

Is this weeding?

The phrase 'tidying up' is ambiguous unless you specifically stated what work you wanted done.

Raised beds and pots

Make sure your soil is light and sandy for carrots generally, it makes it easier for roots to grow big. They don't much like freshly manured soil either, growing in raised beds should decrease the risk of carrot fly as they fly at ground level. My carrot beds this year are about two foot off ground level but I'm also using them as a wind break on an exposed allotment site. Autumn King have always given me a good crop sewn directly to where you want to grow them.

I've used them for starting off lavender cuttings, can't really think of any other uses though.

Afternoon all, I see I got a mention on a previous page

Hope I don't get blamed for any leggy seedlings though. I think the sun must have stayed in the north all day, still a bit cold and very cloudy all day here. Getting excited as I'm starting on the seeds tomorrow, first up is peas and sweet peas.

Excellent, cheers Verdun. I hadn't known there was a potential problem until I read this thread, so thanks for that too.

Sorry I'm a bit late with my question, is the pea moth a common problem and do you just cover at flowering time to stop them? I'm also going to be growing Hurst Greenshaft but it's the first time for me.

How on earth did you get one in the first place then?

A chapter of a book

I'd do a chapter on procrastination, but I'm not sure I'd find the time.
