Year 2 Week 5: More potato planting on the plot…

There must be some “Irish” in me as I have gone mad with the potatoes this season. Last week, my First Earlies went into the ground (Pentland Javelin x10) and this week more have been added:

  • Sharpe’s Express (x5).
  • Charlotte (x10)
  • Albert Bartlett Purple Majesty (x5)
  • Albert Bartlett Red Rooster (x5)
  • Main Crop Sarpo Mia (x10)

Charlotte Potatoes have been chitted and are ready for planting.

Planted Charlotte potatoes in a trench and in individual holes. Have to see whether this has any impact upon the results.

My Albert Bartlett potatoes (Purple Majesty and Red Rooster) planted in a raised bed.

And other produce doing well:

Purple Sprouting broccoli doing well.

New Mixed (Red, White & Yellow) Onions from T&M planted after first leaves have grown.

Main Crop potatoes: Sarpo Mia planted into holes.

Planted in the very front raised bed of my plot, so walking past 225, you’ll see these. Hopefully, these will look attractive (in rows of yellow, red and white). And look, strawberries (already!)….

Noted that White Delight strawberries are flowering already.

Must get ready as instead of planting and weeding, on Saturday, we have our AGM for the Allotment Society….

AGM Agenda in one of the noticeboards next to the gate to the Allotment.
