Harvest for the Day included:- 


Home Guard Potatoes

Stemster Potatoes 

Stepody Potatoes 



Tomatoes from the Crimson Plum that is still holding on out on the plot and a selection of tomatoes from inside the greenhouse on Plot 1 

White and Red Onions from the drying racks.

Raspberries were watered with the sprinkler and then the beetroots were watered after I had harvest them and the apples up on plot 1A

All the spent compost is back in the buckets ready to spread onto one of the new plot one beds as soil conditioner. There are still six large buckets of Potatoes and a beds worth of potatoes yet to harvest. I think I know what I will be doing next weekend on my visit to the plot, and it may have something to do with potatoes!

There has not been and looks to be little time for more weed control during the next couple of weeks.
