I managed to get across to the allotment on a few occasions in the last couple of weeks, mainly just to harvest some vegetables. I did manage to squeeze a little weeding in as well and I actually tidied up the shed.
I have also visited Wilkinsons store in Norwich and bought my seed potatoes~I have gone for~~
PENTLAND JAVELIN~First earlies
MARIS PEER~Second earlies and
MARIS PIPER for the main crop~
I grew Desiree as the main crop last year and although I harvested quite a good weight of potatoes, they were slightly scabbed and a little unsightly.
Some success as my rhubarb shoots are pushing through the topsoil. Always heartening to see some early growth.
I will be digging out my compost heap this week, weather permitting, I usually mix the contents of the heap with some of the horse manure I get from my good friend Roses horses.
I do hope this inclement weather we are experiencing improves, I note from last years post in this blog that I actually planted my first early potatoes on the 16th. February~~
