I’ve been planting Charlotte salad potatoes in the glorious warm sunshine. The past few days have been quite warm, easy to forget it’s only March.
Potatoes use up a lot of space in the veg garden but I always find room for salad types. I have some Charlotte seed potatoes left over so I will probably plant another row in a few weeks time, this should help to prolong the harvest period. I missed a few plants last year, thankfully a long spell of good weather allowed me to continue digging up Charlotte potatoes well into October.
Desiree main crop potatoes are going in at the allotment next month, the growing tubers should break the compacted soil further down where it’s hard to dig.
