Potato planting.

Last week, quite a bit later than intended, we planted 2 acres of potatoes on the farm. In one field we have an acre of earlies (Rocket and Maris Peer) plus experimentals (Blue Danube, Sarpo Axona, and Valor), and in another field an acre of Picasso maincrop (Ambo stocks had run out and this is the closest alternative). Many thanks to our wwoofers Tessa, Alex, Lina and Mackie for taking it in turns to sit on the back of the planter in some very strong winds.
