Allotments make you pay for your absence.
Having been away for 2 weeks I’ve come back to weeds, a few bolting salads, carrots in need of urgent thining-out, but also lush growth. And the TPS (True Potato Seed) are no exception.
Of the TPS – Howie Mandel, that I’m growing some seem to be growing rather tall, rather too quickly, others plants seem a little slower, but look good nonetheless. So they’ve had another mulch, and unlike any of the other potatoes I grow have had a good water. Still no sign of flowers yet, but it’s only early July.
