My new potato bed that Ian made early in July is thriving!
Here is the potato variety in each row and when it was planted (from left to right)
-Red Norland 27/7
-King Edward 5/8
They have all been hilled up and mulched with pea straw with dripper hose reticulation.
Back in March I split my one big artichoke into 7 and was a bit worried about what I had done. To my surprise they have all taken and look fantastic- now all I need to do is work out when to pick them and how to prepare them! Luckily I have a friend who said she would help me out.
I think next year some of them might have to be moved as they are really cramped in, I have plans for a new vegie area in the garden so they might go in there.
Can you learn to love hard work?
