Plant potatoes

Apparently Easter weekend is the traditional time to ‘plant your pots’ so that’s exactly what we did. 6 fine little rows of Desiree news have gone in at the allotment this weekend and the kids were more than happy to be on hand to help them get bedded in.  They did everything from helping to dig the trench to placing the potatoes in, recovering them and finally watering them in. What fun we had and you know what they say ‘You can’t beat a good spud’ so we’ll be busy popping up to the allotment over the next few weeks to water them in and watch out for signs of the first shoots poking through. If we’re patient and if we’re in luck we’ll be rewarded with some red skinned ‘ beauts’ in the summer. This crop’s particularly good for mashing. Can’t wait !
