One potato, two potato…

12 Apr

Well, the time has finally arrived to move my fully chitted potatoes into their growing bags. They’ve achieved their 1cm of growth so now begins the process of getting them growing.

Unlike other plants they require a little more attention during planting; building up to a full sack of soil over the course of a few weeks. First a shallow bed for the potatoes, then as they grow above the soil you add more, repeating this process of exposing and covering until the bag is full. I am super excited about these two as neither variety, International Kidney or Winston are types I’ve tried. I’m planting the Winston first because I want them to be my main crop. Bring on the roasties!
