Hi all....I know theres a wealth of experience out there...can someone help me? Why oh why do my spuds fall apart when boiled. I dont peel them. I watch them carefully, to no avail. Ive grown different different parts of the allotment (AKA rotation). They look so lush when i dig them up, but unless eaten raw (ps i dont) they just fall apart...can you help me good gardening folks? Many thanks....
