Potato Planting Week - the photos.

January 1st, Dan ploughs the potato strip in preparation.

Wednesday, a small but dedicated team of volunteers planted 5 beds of Pentland Javelin early potatoes.

Thursday, a big bunch of volunteers planted 30 Autumn Bliss raspberry canes.

Friday, more volunteers planted 11 beds of Maris Peer and Cosmos potatoes.

Saturday, we finished the raspberries by planting the final 20 canes.

Celebration - pancake day came early as we rounded the week off in the farmhouse kitchen.

Many thanks to everyone who came along and helped make the week a spud-tastic planting success! We are now halfway through the potato planting, and should finish this week (weather permitting).....
