Christmas potatoes are growing

A couple of weeks ago we reported that we had received some potato tubers for summer planting and cropping in time for Christmas. We have planted out three potato bags, each with 4 tubers and I am now pleased to report that they are sprouting and shoots are just breaking the surface of the compost.

The potato bags were a good investment. We grow plenty of potatoes on the allotment so the bags are an addition for us. However, for people with no allotment and only a small garden - or indeed no garden at all - potato bags are very useful. They can be used on patios, balconies and flat rooves.
