Yesterday was a warm dry day so I decided to go for it and plant my potatoes, as the clods of recently forked soil broke down surprisingly well when raking them over.
Rather than dig trenches I made planting holes with the long handle dipper and then recovered with soil.
This seemed a quick and easy method especially as I used walk boards ,rather than a planting line, to align the rows.
I usually earth up rows from the start but this year I'll wait until the shoots emerge.
|Blue Kestrel.These and some of the other varieties are planted in "wide rows" due to an over estimate in my potato seed buying.|
