New charlotte potatoes planted in the ground.
These Seed Potatoes were on special offer (£2.99) so the day after they arrived, they’ve been planted. Looking forward to late summer new potatoes.
Potatoes (Charlotte) after planting.
Transferred Bedford Brussels Sprouts onto the plot in the covered Brassica Bed.
Used old plant catalogues to make paper pots which I find so useful. Doesn’t disturb the root growth when transplanting.
Sprouts are dressed with collars in the hope of preventing Cabbage Root fly.
Unfortunately I have run out so we shall see how effective collars are.
Salad crop coming through the ground.
Signs of slug trails around my Blue Lake Climbing French Beans.
The Bedford Brussels Sprouts are surviving although some leaves have been nibbled.
And the radish growing inbetween the peas.
Peas are in flower.
Main onion crop doing well although the garlic (late planted) has disappeared and is no showing signs of growth.
Musselburgh Leek seedlings doing well.
My second onion bed is doing well and the leeks are coming along (Musselburgh).
Strawberries are starting to fruit up after having lots of white flowers.
