So I threw caution to the wind and sowed all my potatoes with good high drills. 1 drill of early home guards well chitted and three drills of latest. Golden wonders, records and roosters. They weren't chitted so well, but feck it. It's to freeze tonight but the rain at the weekend should see off the last of the frost. Anyways I hope it works out. It's done now anyways.

Delighted to see my earlies finally breaking through this week. I've been out watching for ages, follow each 'push' of the soil, and now the first shoots are through. So happy! I thought they'd never show. Smile
