Tatties planted 

Planted ml bulk of the tatties outside toz I’ll day. The bed had been manured last spring and then covered with weed I c km msuppressing fabric for a year so was in good condition for planting. I would ideally have rotorvated it but it was still a bit wet so planted the tatties anyway. Put in three varieties 

  • Red Duke of York – first early 
  • Maris Peer – second early 
  • Cara – maincrop 

All being well we should be eating them by the end of July. 

Tatties ready for planting

Once planted the whole bed was mulched with hay / straw / manure emptied out of the lamhus, which is now vacated by the hog lambs and needs to be ready for ewes with new born lambs who need a bit of tlc.
