We have lifted all our spuds……Spunta, Desiree and Yukon Gold, we planted 1/2 sacks of Spunta and Desiree and 1kg of Yukon Gold (bought back in my bag from UK in Feb!)
The colorado beetle attacks here if potatoes are left in past June, and I planted aubergines along the rows and at the ends to help prevent this, that said we didn’t have a problem and not one potato had anything wrong with it. We had a great dirt fight….the joys of gardening with a partner. We were dissappointed initially with the yield and my guestimate was that we would have about 8 sacks, each weighing 25 kilos, infact we have more than that so it’s all good. we had a taste of the desiree tonight as chips and they were great!!
welcomethis is a blog about two people making as much of their life as they can by hand on 15th October, 600 forest fires and hurricane Ophelia, ravaged 1 million acres of land, incinerated houses (along with ours) and took many lives, destroying forests and wildlife, infrastructure and livelihoods We are currently looking for new land to build again, in a different way but still by hand......keep checking in and send us messages, your continued support means a lot to both of us
