We are well into the potato planting season. How have you got on in the wettest March we have seen in nearly 10 years.
My first early Sharpes Express sowed 12th March, 11 under this cloche and 13 others outside. Need to do a bit of weeding!
British Queens chitted and ready for planting to-day.
Two furrows opened to take 72 seed.
36 Queen seed planted with a bit of peat to reduce Ph and avoid scab.
3 rows of potatoes planted here. Two Queens and one Home guard on the left planted on St Patricks day, March 17th.
