Spuds in Shandon

Today we had a look at the Charlottes in the potato bags. It’s great to see the spuds, but we didn’t get the yield as from the allotment, but then I think we’ve not given them enough water, nor earthed them up enough. I guess the ones planted in the ground can weather a two-week holiday better than in bags.

Looking for some spuds

There was half a bag of spent compost that we tipped out onto the veg bed. Probably won’t hvae many nutrients, but will add structure to the soil.
