You may recall me talking about the potato container Matt made back here.
Well, we’ve finally bought some straw and put some potatoes in it!
I must point out firstly that we’ve never grown potatoes before, so this is all an experiment and we’re not sure how well it will work. I’ll keep you updated as they grow (or don’t grow!)
Firstly we separated the container Matt made into two parts, to make it easier to get to the bottom
and put some mulch and manure in the bottom.
We bought some seed potatoes, and cut them into pieces. Each piece with one eye on it.
We then placed each seed potato piece, with the eye facing up, in the bottom of the potato container.
and took some photos of Penny being cute…
added a light layer of straw and mulch on top of our potatoes
Hopefully we’re not waiting too long!
