Site prep and bed history.
This is the third time I've used this bed. First was last summer for Sweet Corn (umm sweet corn) then I followed them from mid summer with Cabbage, Cauliflower, and Broccoli. Each time I add in at least 2 bags of horse stable manure, as much compost as I could spare and blood and bone. While I had veggies in the bed is mulched and watered with charlie carp and seasol.
For the tatties I have done the same. The bed has been ready for 3 weeks and I'll add the blood and bone when rain is due.
This is the easy bit all the hard work has been done by now.
I trenched out to a depth of 200mm, placed tatties 30 odd cm apart and back filled about 100mm. This should give me in the end about a 400mm mound over the seed and hopefully a bumper crop.
In go the King Edwards
In go the Pink Eye.
A little water, mulching, hilling, fertilizing, weeding and in 4/5 months ta da tatties.
