Well surprisingly after the forecast we were given the weather has been quite good to us over the last week. We have had some rain but it has been in the evenings and I was grateful for this as it watered my new plants in nicely and helped them get established.
Although we haven't had a whole lot of sun and at times the wind has been strong the days have generally been warm in the late teens and occasionally scraping the 20's...if this keeps up for September I will be happy!!
Now for the potatoes...I am still digging my second early new potatoes and although they are quite big they scrape well, cook nicely and taste delicious. I have dug quite a few now and all of them have been healthy and there are a good number of potatoes to each plant.
Haven't been down the plot much this week...kids starting back at school and college and work re-commencing has put a spanner in the works until I get back into the swing of things...Hoping to get a day down there at the weekend though!!
