First potatoes for 2010
Also got about 250g of small and medium strawberries, with a terrific flavour, very sweet and also juicy after the last days of rain. And today for lunch I will be eating my first lettuce! (cut and come again, green) with a handful of rocket and landcress. So proud...sniff sniff sniff...
UPDATE - Looked and saw that those spuds were planted on February 22. So they have had 98 growing days. Spot on.
I planted these spuds on Feb 22 (helps to keep a blog! I now see all the harvest durations! Helps to see in the next year when something might be ready!). They were Agata variety and I am very pleased with them. They are firm but not too waxy, very nice steamed or boiled with a pleasant texture. The skins are fine and can be eaten no problems!
Last year I had strawberries in late April or early May! I am late. These are varieties though that will keep fruiting throughout summer, maybe that makes a difference. They are Cijosee and Rabunda varieties. Some are new stock, some are older.
