Potatoes (again-sorry!)

Posted: 09/06/2012 at 21:21

I know I'm going to sound dumb now and I apologise in advance but I'm not sure what earlies, second earlies and maincrop are....does it mean new potatoes first then inbetweeners then old potatoes from the same plant?

Thank you Dovefromabove....think I may have some weeding to do then!

I did use markers at one end of each row but I must have dropped a few carrot seeds, these are popping up in their neighbours row!! oh well practise makes perfect....I hope.

Thank you sotongeoff! such a shame...they were looking sooo gorgeous and I was sooo proud of them, maybe 'with a bit of luck' they will bloom again!

I planted Leeks, Beetroot, carrots and potatoes in late May, The potatoes are in full swing and the carrots have popped up and are quite obvious to the eye.....my problem is where I planted the beetroot and leeks, quite a few weeds have popped up, I dare not pull them up just in case I pull up my veg! should they have started to show yet and will it be obvious when they do....I have tried to identify them by looking for rows but I think maybe my rows were'nt exactly rows...if you know what I mean!? )

Keeping Chickens

Is it normal for chickens to lay eggs out in the run?

odd behaviour??

Posted: 24/05/2012 at 12:41

Hi Guys,

Just been out to collect eggs, I have 4 chickens and got 4 eggs, started laying 2/3 weeks ago. 3 of the eggs was in the laying box as always but for the first time one was on the ground in the run?? never had this before. It is also smaller than the rest. When I let them out this morning they went straight to the water and spent ages drinking it and they were'nt quite as cheeky as normal, also one seems to be looking a lot fatter than the others, a bit puffed out??? is this normal or could there be something wrong?
