Planted out 1st earlies a couple of weeks ago and they are just coming through. One lot of 2nd earlies went out today and I'm hoping to get main crop planted next weekend.
It's certainly a lot easier growing in bags. The soil on my allotment hasn't been worked for several years so it's packed solid and boy does it dry out quickly, the ridge of soil for the 1st earlies to earth up with was dried and cracked this weekend after just a few days sunshine, is this normal?
