How many years have you grown them like that ?
3 years, but in different places, so I suppose it can affect the growth. Last year patch is now cover with a mixt of flower special bees. I’ve covered the ground after the spud harvest, and it was ready to be sawn in april. The flower bed is impressive now, just waiting for the flowers to come now.Anonymous6th June 2021 at 9:36 pm #552387
I like ” alternative” gardening , trying out different things instead of just doing the same old stuff all the time .
We never make compost , been declared crazy , but it works for us .Anonymous6th June 2021 at 10:15 pm #552392
It’s a good way to grow potatoes as a vegetable , which is more French, than growing a whole garden full of potatoes as a ” staple” as in Holland, Germany and sometimes England .
We enjoy potatoes as a Spring veg , but not as a basic diet .
I have no idea of the variety we have either Babeth! I am now inspecting daily and removing a Doryphore now and again, not many fortunately and as I didn’t plant many potatoes I can easily carry out the daily inspection to control them and the clusters of eggs I keep finding too.
