We (and of course by that I really mean Andrew) chitted and planted these beauties this year:
early - 'Sharpes Express'
main - 'Maris Piper'
I cut a heck of a lot of grass from around the beds (about 5 buckets full; Andrew needed to sharpen my shearers half way through!) and we used this as a protective cover over the newly planted potatoes. In time this will of course become hay and keep the heat in like a big cosy eco friendly duvet.
There was also a little bit of the old seed sowing done :
- mixed lettuce (which is under a mini sun tunnel)
- peas 'kelvedon wonder'
- beetroot 'blotardy'
- and leeks 'lyon 2 prizetaker' and 'musselburgh'
