After all the doom and gloom about the weather I have something positive to report...my first pick of new potatoes this year.
These are Lady Christl, planted in a sack in the greenhouse ten weeks ago. There were also lots of pea-size spuds and I know I should have left them another couple of weeks but when it comes to new potatoes I'm like a kid in a toy shop and I just have to have them!
The taste was divine and with Jersey Royals at £3 a kilo in the shops don't let anyone tell you that growing your own isn't worth it.
Well worthwhile by the look of them, and from what you say!
You never let us down, Colin. My Lady Christl are not far off ready but I'm being very good and not furtling until mid-May at the earliest.
Look really nice I must say
Amazing! My potatos are just 2 inch high. Greenhouse is high on my wish list.
They look good,Colin. I "checked" mine and they are only about the size of eggs!
