Today was my first on duty morning at the horticultural society trading shed this year.
I was there early and found that one of the robins was waiting for me to put some bird food out.
As expected it was fairly busy as the onion sets and seed potatoes had arrived during the week and were on sale.
I’ve still got some onions in store from last year which I will use over the next few weeks. The Sturon sets I bought this morning will be planted out towards the end of March.
I finished the last of my stored potatoes a couple of weeks ago so I’m now having to buy them through into June. This year I’m only growing three varieties, half of which are my favourite variety Charlotte. I’m trying a new for me first early Lady Christl which a couple of people have recommended. The maincrop variety I’m growing is Cara, which I’ve not grown for a few years. In mid February I’ll put them all in trays on the windowsill in the spare room to chit before planting out late March into April.
Have a good week!
