Just a promised update on those baking potatoes that I threw in the manure/compost no-dig beds and which have produced such and abundance of leaves over the summer, no water, no care at all.

I had 4 potatoes which I cut in halves, two pieces in each bin. Six became plants. Until a few days ago they were all lush, but suddenly they withered and I noticed some spuds close to the surface. So off in a hurry to get them out before they all turned green.

And here is my harvest. Some of them are just MASSIVE!


Since we had a bit of water and cooler weather, suddenly seeds have been sprouting that I thought were lost, I think these are from Mary Jo. Your hollyhocks are also doing well!
