We lifted some of our second early varieties at the weekend, with mixed results. When we planted our potatoes, we put in 7 seed potatoes of each type. Ratte gave us 2.5kg whilst Charlotte gave a whopping 7.5kg. You can see the scab spots on our Maris Peer, so we will have these first as they won’t last as long as the others. The Peer and Athlete were 4.5kg each.
We will be sharing most of the clean potatoes lifted to date amongst community groups over the next few days.
