I covered them back up, gave them a feed of tomato fertilizer and will see if I can get a meal out them next weekend. Ooh, the anticipation!!
These are Lady Christl, in my opinion the tastiest of all the 'new' potatoes I've tried.
Of course, such things are subjective but this is a variety that seems quite happy with my growing technique and conditions. In the greengrocer's the other day I noticed that Jersey Royals were £3.50 per kilo but I've never found them that tasty. Certainly not worth paying that kind of money for.
A lot of the outside crops are sulking at the moment due to the cool weather and if the forecast cold May turns out to be reality we could be in for some poor harvests. Last year was a bad one for potatoes and tomatoes but I got some great onions and soft fruit so it'll be swings and roundabouts as usual.
There are some insects around but not as many as there should be at this time of year. I keep rescuing bumble bees trapped in the greenhouse and I managed to snap this ladybird yesterday.
