Potatoes

September 7, 2010

In face of earthquakes I have started planting potatoes.

I have dug 3 trenches about 20cm deep and then covering my (slightly) chitted potatoes, placed approx 25 cm apart.

So far I have planted out 2 trenches – probably do the last one today.

I have been using “Swift” variety which promises maturity in 60 days
