Hello! I have another quick update today to show you all how the potatoes are growing along in the potato planter I told you about recently.
The growing tips of the potatoes recently emerged and are looking great:
To recap, this is an early variety known as ‘Cara’, which are a heavy early cropper and should be ready to harvest in August-September.
I have been topping up the compost to cover the growing tips until they reach near to the top of the planter… then it will just be a case of waiting for blooms etc to harvest! Using the mini access door should make this really straightforward.
I’m delighted with how everything is growing this year and that I managed to stay organised and get these potatoes in the ground earlier this year. I’m looking forward to harvest time 🙂 Stay tuned for more updates!
