Come children gather round. Put down that chocolate easter egg and have a look at the strange lady digging a potato row.
Yes. Super old-fashioned moment for me.
I’m a no dig gal when it comes to the potager. I just mulch over the top and off I go.
But I decided I needed to have a good look at this soil up here in the top potager – it hasn’t been cultivated for years and years.
Actual digging. Quite the novelty. There were worms.
But I was pleasantly surprised how healthy this soil looked.
Two long rows and in went the Charlottes. New potatoes.
I mounded up the rows, stood back and thought: goodness, who on earth is going to hoe the weeds on this exposed soil?
And I haven’t any spare mulch. So this is going to be the best look you get.
It’s spring. It’s all downhill from here.
