Chainsaw and Potato cropping

Its getting towards mid October so we decided to dig up the sarpo mira red potatoes we planted in June in one of the raised beds. A good crop we have got too for our efforts. Ian brought his chain saw along so we could cut back on the cupresses leylandii hedge at the end of the plot and also a large branch from the tree in between the plot and next door’s garden. This will let much more light onto our vegetable plat. The gardening group now aims to meet every Friday morning to work on our plot. We will go outside if the weather is OK and if it isn’t we will do some work indoors – planning and constructing things like our wooden compost bay, shed and greenhouse
