Good spuds

Postby JohnN » Sun Jul 17, 2016 9:14 am

I wonder how other KFGers are faring with their "earlies". I've had a super crop of Arran Pilots. I had 12 plants which I've just harvested and got 6-8lb per plant, many of them "baking size" and no slug damage. Hope you've all done well!

When did you plant them John, I don't get that sort of yield per plant from earlies although Arran Pilot is reckoned to grow quick I believe.

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

Planted them Mid-March and, sorry, they are Kestrel, not APs.
