It was a so-so week and the weekend has been damp and dull again, and I certainly won’t dwell on what the slugs and snails are doing to the plants. Thankfully despite all that there have been some compensations.
I planted out the first early potatoes Pentland Javelin thirteen weeks ago, and as they’re a non-flowering variety I’ve waited for the foliage to start dying back. During the week I had a dig round one plant using my fingers and found these, the bottom two being about the size of a large egg. Needless to say they cooked well and tasted really good. I will be lifting more through the month as I need them.
There are plenty of colourful flowers, like these nasturtiums to brighten up dull days.
The unsettled, damp weather looks like continuing through next week so I guess that I won’t be doing much plotting.
Take care, and have a good week!
