Took advantage of a break in the torrential downpour yesterday to dig up all the potatoes we planted in August. I’m sure I missed quite a few and several got cut in half by my over enthusiastic spadework unfortunately but otherwise not a bad haul considering.
The robin turned up as soon as the soil had been dug, reminding me a lot of Wilb‘s ability to hear her food bag being opened from a radius of 10-15 miles.
But I digress. The whole reason I dug all the potatoes up yesterday was that the next garden experiment had arrived, in the form of 3 raspberry canes from Thompson and Morgan.
They tend to deliver things when you should plant them, so they went straight in. Now I just have to work out what to plant in there besides. Rhubarb? Green beans? Suggestions on a post card please.
