Week 47 (Year 6): Planting First Early Potatoes (Sharpe’s Express) ahead of the curve….

As I’ve had a few more days of “free time” as I was meant to be on holidays, I thought as they were chitted, my First Early Potatoes went into the ground. Traditionally, potatoes are transferred into the ground at Easter but given that that is a moving feast and I’ve got the time, I’ve decided to do this earlier than that!

As per my usual routine, I dig holes for the potatoes, fill them with manure…

And use well rotted manure to load the holes full of growing comfort:

(I don’t know why, put I place them with the roots upwards in the hope that this will help with their development but who knows!)
