A Photo A Day - No. 8

Potatoes from the garden
1 Royal Blue
2 Sapphire - Purple fleshed
3 Red Star
4 Kipfler

I have been experimenting with different varieties and planting methods this year.
  • Some were grown in the ground and heavily mulched with straw and compost.
  • Some were mulched mainly with straw.
  • Others were grown in tyres with straw mulch.
  • Others in straw and compost in wire cages. These in the sun dried out far too quickly but I have some more in a shaded area that are yet to be checked.
No doubt all will suffer from our very dry conditions this year but so far the best have been the Sapphires, the purple fleshed ones.
