This spring has seen frosts, flooding, scorching sun and drought over just an eight-week period.
The unfortunate ‘early crop’ potato plants have been frozen, rotted, burnt and suffocated all in their short little lives.
I look forward with trepidation to the big communal ‘Main Crop’ harvest (next Saturday 6.30am start).
MY EMERGING ‘EARLY’ POTATOES:
(IS IT ANY WONDER…)
BORN OF UNEARTHLY WEATHER CONDITIONS
We’ve been expecting you.
