Apart from yesterday I was on the plot every morning last week. The foliage on the first early potatoes Red Duke of York has started dying back so one morning I had a gentle dig around one plant by hand and found a handful of good sized potatoes.
Every day I’ve been picking some strawberries to bring home and eat. Needless to say they taste every bit as good as they look.
Among the pot marigolds are some that have a touch of red, often as a delicate edging to each petal tip and more visible on the undersides as seen here.
The Chiltern Seeds catalogue lists several Touch of Red varieties including Buff, Orange and Mixed.
Have a good week!
