Is it just me who thinks there's something beautiful about chitting potatoes? The alien like growths exploding unprompted out of the earthy brown skin of humble seed potatoes are one of nature’s more impressive ways of reminding you that spring is on its way.
With the weather now warming up (if we can all just pretend yesterday’s slight frost didn't happen that'd be grand) my thoughts are turning to thoughts of potatoes, more specifically when to get the first earlies in the ground. I'm thinking it may still be a little early for this weekend, however with a week away on holiday looming at the beginning of April that only leaves the weekend of 26/27th if I do rule out this coming one, and then what if it's wet and horrible that week? Perhaps it'd be worth risking getting them in this weekend, if the weather permits, after all?
