Really needed to finish weeding and digging over this patch where I will plant the remainder of the Main Crop Potatoes 'Picasso'
All the roots and weeds were burnt in the incinerator bin!
I also weeded between the Radar Onions, simply by using a draw hoe at an angle so the pointed edge causes a shallow trench it lightly earths up the Onions too.
19 of the 'Foremost' Potatoes have broken through the dry soil, I planted these on April 13th, so less than a month.
Even though I have grown Potatoes for ages now, I'm always excited to see the 1st shoots.
Its been a weekend of firsts.
Here is the first harvest of the 'Stewarts Purple' Asparagus that we put in in 2011, we did have a few spears last year, the yield should be bigger this year.
Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
