Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes
Easy as one two three.
One, tatties need hilling.
Two, add extra tyre.
Three, add Compost aged horse stable manure and a handfull of blood and bone and away we go.
Top it off with a little sugar cane mulch and where done.
These are the King Edward potatoes I planted on the 29th of August.
They are growing better than the Pink Eye, but I think that is because the Kings were planted whole while the Pink Eye were cut into pieces.
I back filled the trench they are growing in a little and the soil is about at ground level. The next time I will need to draw soil up to them in order to hill them, but for now so for so good.
