potatoes-in-a-raised-bed

Posted: 28/08/2013 at 20:19

Hi, potatoe folk, I planted a variety of new potatoes in a deep raised flower bed about 12 weeks ago from 2 that had gone to seed in my veg bowl in the kitchen, I just stuck them in the ground and they took off, how will I know when they are ready for picking?

Gourds !!

Posted: 19/08/2013 at 11:06

I planted a small gourd plant that I bought from Lidl in May, it is now approx 30 feet in length and taking over my whole garden, its like Jack and the Beanstalk...It has about 9 fruits on it the largest being the size of a water melon which is now resting on an upturned bucket for support, the fruit is bright yellow but with no markings, I wonder if its a pumpkin, there are no currugations or ripples, its quite smooth. I was a bit confused about what I just read,  I give him lots of water and there a thousands of giant leaves, do I water or not, where do gourds come from and when will I know when to cut the fruits off...also can anyone tell me how I know when to dig up my new potatoes which I planted in June from 2 potatoes that had gone to seed in my kitchen bowl...
