Love the smell of fresh hessian in the morning!!!

 The final digging of the last of my Ruby Lou Potatoes.

And to celebrate I shouted myself two potato bags from The Lost Seed Co. to store them in.

Love the smell of fresh hessian in the morning!!!
 This is about the long and short of it. About three rows of spuds from 15 or so seed potatoes.

While Ruby Lou is a great little roasting/chipping potato I'm thinking 'little' is the operative word here. Also not what I'd call a big cropper by any accounts. I'll be looking for a different variety to plant come next spring.
They're in the bag. About half full and ready for the shed/garage.

As for what gets planted next in this bed, well they're already in. Peas it is. Mainly for their nitrogen fixing ability and then a follow up with Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.
They all don't mind a bit of lime so I'll chuck some of that around and dig in some compost and blood and bone at the same time and she'll be as sweet as........ honey.

Cheers everyone

Hi Stewart. I will have to dig up the tatties and see how they have gone. I am beginning to think about brassicas too. Dug a bed today and planted some broad beans as a green manure crop.

I was thinking about peas too but I think it might still be a bit hot. Our summer seems to have come 2 months late this year and the humidity is killing us.

Nice tattie bags, I got some from Mitre 10 a couple of years ago in anticipation of a bumper crop - I was sadly disappointed.

Stewart said...

Hazel, what a good idea. I've got a bag of broad bean seeds here and a bed with nothing in it.

Hi greenfumb,summer's a bit the same here but if nothing else the peas are good for the soil. And if I'm lucky I'll get a crop as well. As for potatoes, I can't say I'm anywhere near mastering them as a crop. But I'll Keep trying.

This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader
amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than
that, how you presented it. Too cool!

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
