Some potatoes dug up yesterday, some are huge... Lots are tiny 😂
Potatoes covered at the back...
Potatoes growing well in the trenches before I'm about to cover them
Finally got the rest of the potatoes in 🤭
It's all looking amazing.
Thanks @charlotte it's a bit later then I would have liked but it's ok.
Before covering them over
It's about time these showed up! 😅
Main crop potatoes planted out today... 20/04/21
Finally got the main potatoes in ! 😅
Not many potatoes this year, still have to do my other allotment but I'm pretty sure they all rotted with the flooding. Still I bet they are nice 🙂
The potatoes don't look healthy at all, the grounds still wet since the flooding. I think hey are rotting away. 😐
I have lower areas @gardengirlla it's never happened before but the rain has been a bit to much. We are due thunder storms next week too, I love them but don't want ant more rain!
I said I wasn't going to plant in the ground this year but I have 👍
It's a love hate thing it's great finding them digging them up but so much hard work 😂 @gardengirlla at least I have a shed this year so I don't have to carry them home as soon as I dig them up.
You have taught her well @kimmy01 👍🏼
A few potatoes in the raised bed on #stpatricksday 😀 for the #veginonebed book I'm following along 😊
I've put the radish and little gem in my raised bed today. I'll put my potatoes 🥔 in bags only because I've not gone to the same dimensions of the raised bed that is in the book 📚
I'm going to give some a go in bags or buckets this yeah too, will be easier to harvest I think... You could do another salad for sections 1&2 maybe @Cazx
Curing some potatoes from the allotment away from puppy
2 potatoes turns into this 😀
From 2 potatoes to a bag of potatoes... Curing 😊
Most of the potato's weeded and earthed up 😅 that was a work out! Just as the sun came out
Another row of potato's in.. Need to get a move on! 🌞🌞🌞
Where is your allotment and how much do you pay, im looking to get one I can grow in
I badly need an allotment. Lol. I found one in meakstown but theirs a waiting list.
I'm in the north east of England and pay £67 a year @jamescalli its so worth it 😊 I didn't have to wait to long for this but in the last town I lived in for 4 years I was still on the waiting list and was no where near getting one of my own.
All this from 3 potato skins 😊 and I only cut 1 potato instead of nearly all of them... I must be getting the hang of it lol #potatopeelchallage
Nice harvest there @kimmy01 what variety are they
Main crop potatoes all from peelings 😁 #potatopeelchallage
Wow! You'll have enough to feed an army by September! 😁
That will be awesome 😍 @jeatacake I have a army of 4 😂😂
They'll not be going marching on an empty stomach that's for sure 😂😂😂
well done 😊
I have first earlies in too @jeatacake 😂 not as many though. They are ready now but waiting for the inspections to be over
And putting some new potatoes on next time I'm at the allotment 😂😂 omg I sound potato mad
You've got the space & they will store well, so go for it, but you may have to change your catchphrase to "Spuds = happy"! 😁
😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 @jeatacake you should see next doors plot 😮 full of them
Soooooo, you have a spud growing competition going on! 😁😁😁😁
Yup and I kept them on a plate for a couple of weeks I thought they had it for sure but there just full of life @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom I wish I took I pic now
