The fiftieth potato


My control pot.

The first earlies are in; late earlies. A little creativity with spacing was required to fit in all the seeds. Another little mistake with calculating the bed size.


So, instead of 30cm spacing it was more like 25cm. Rather than 60cm between rows, I measured out 45cm.


We are going to get enough potatoes out of 50 seeds without worrying about heavy croppers.

And, so. The fiftieth potato. I held one back to act as my “control”. Of course, I was so tired by the time I struggled home this evening – more digging – that I forgot to plant it.

The control will go in a pot to sit in the greenhouse.

Seems like a plan.
