I've had my seed Potatoes for 2 weeks now so here is my short lesson on 'chitting'.
Look all over each spud, you are looking for a 'dimple' that is where it was attached to the parent plant, you need to set your spuds in an egg tray with this dimple down.
So only after two weeks I have already got some short green shoots showing.
These are the 1st early 'Rocket' I have grown them before and found them to be very early as the name suggests.
So here again is my 'chitting station' and old pine shelf unit I adapted by adding a few extra shelves. The Potatoes I'm growing this year, from top to bottom:
194 in total, hope I have room for them all!
Our 7 hungry Chickens are doing well, the 3 Ex-Battery have retired and don't lay eggs anymore.
The 4 Light Sussex have been laying since Jan 6th so just over a month now and so far we have had 88 eggs!
As you can see they are fully grown Hens now and I love their plumage.
The bright red comb & wattle is a good sign of health.
Their diet of chicken feed, corn & allotment greens shows in the eggs they produce, with deep yellow yolks.
Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
