Finally the potato planted around Easter time are ready to harvest…..
With so much rain this year….. though not suffer from any flooding scenario, caught the blight in some and have to cut down the top part in earlier stage and left the tuber in the ground continue to grow on before the harvest….
This was taken at the end of May, all my potato beds has good signs of the crops…..
Here comes the rainy June, no flood here at my plot, except the speedy growth of the crops… they are thriving through the wettest month of the record years past…..
The flowers indicated the skin of the crops, white petals more less are white skin potato which the purple more less are the red skin potato….. nice to seeing all these flowers…. they looks pretty and another signs of good crops underneath…..
A short week to dash around in the allotment as family call for a break to Cornwall the following week. When it said a week, that means add a couple days to prepare (packing and lock up) before the away saga and a couple days after to reset (cleaning and ironing) back to routine…… what a bumper……somehow I do consider the allotment is my real holiday dent…..
Highlights of this week
Here are some of the highlights of this week……
I have tried weedling most of the time in this week but I do bet they will shoot back up while I am away…….
