Going underground

Its been a month and shamefully only 3 posts since I first prized the seed potatoes out of their packet, balanced them in an egg carton and hoped that through a mix of faith, luck and magic they might start to sprout a bit.

You'll like this. Not a lot, but you'll like it (it's not the same without Debbie McGee is it?).

Fan Dabi Dozi!(very much the same even if no grown women are dressed as schoolboys)

So now they're all sprouty and green, best stick them in some dark moist soil.

Advise on the packet says put them 10cm deep, but given the ongoing mixed weather I decided to go an extra 5cm down just to be on the safe side.

As they start to surface in the next few weeks, I'll shovel some more soil into the grow bag, try my best not to over water or ignore them and see if I can get Paul Daniels over to magic some potatoes appear out of the soil.

  1. Good luck Chris! I'm going to attempt some potatoes over at the London Vegetable Garden this year too - need to purchase some tubers and get started though!
