John dug our first potato patch two weeks ago, and we planted seed potatoes the following week. Good to see some sprouts from the first early "Jersey Bennes" start to come up. We also planted "Agria," which should be a bit later.
This is my first attempt at growing potatoes, except for those that crop up on an ad hoc basis in the compost bin. I've read that rabbits don't eat potatoes, so we haven't fenced the patch. The aim is to have new potatoes with Christmas dinner.
And Spud, yes, of course he's watching everything through the fence, keeping an eye on those spuds!
