So the taties went in. Yey! A seasonal landmark.
|Wilja-13/15 weeks to harvest(4 /18 July)|
I was hoping to get them all in two beds, and I could've if I had crowded them a bit more, but I needed to leave room to ridge them up in the ordinary beds, so I only did two rows.
The maincrop should have a bit more space than the earlies, so they have spread over 2 beds instead of the expected one.
One of the new raised beds which I filled with soil improver, is now planted up with Desiree, fairly closely planted as I am led to believe crops can be grown more intensively in raised beds.
In my travels around the plot I came across this lovely clump of aubretia. The original plant was from some plant scheme seed which didn't do at all well, wasn't sellable and looked as if it would die quite soon. So I shoved the two surviving plants at the edge of the path last autumn and even though it is the wet end of the plot, they have loved it.
