Planting potatoes

As usual we have been hindered by cold wet weather in February and March, but over the past week we have managed to plant two thirds of this year's potato crop, being ten sacks of Maris Peer, ten of Charlotte, ten of Cara, and ten of Valor. Next (tomorrow?) we have fifteen sacks of Ambo to plant, followed by the six crates of Sarpo Mira seed potatoes that we have saved from this year's harvest.
