So, in the middle of March we planted six seed potatoes in the vegetable patch. We don't have a good track record of growing potatoes, so we spent a lot of time choosing these ones after talking to the helpful man in the seed potato choosing department. These are early main crop, completely idiot-proof, don't need too much watering, will grow in any soil and any weather conditions potatoes, so we should be just about ok.
About 2 weeks after we planted them, we started seeing little leaves growing out of the soil. And now just look at them - triffids! I'll be weeding them and earthing them up at the weekend.
And don't they look grand in the early evening sunlight?
