I put in the first spuds on 27 February and I will probably start getting the new potatoes in a week or so. So exciting! Last year I got good spuds on June 1, but this year they have done much better and are flowering so I think I can chance an earlier harvest. I only dig up 2 or 3 plants at a time so I will be digging up the earlies until well into June. Then will be time for the seconds!
2012 - Snow in February, non-stop rain till July. Blight and rot are rife. Thieving voles cause strife. But first runner beans and lots of greens. Follow an English allotment in urban France: http://roos-and-camembert.blogspot.com
