Well, we've reached the 1st February, the start of Spring and I got all fired up and decided to do some sowing for Pea Shoots and planting of Potatoes in 2 litre pots.
Most of the potatoes had sprouted in their storage bags and were those I'd grown last year but I also planted a Lady Christl and a Maris Bard I got from the Hampshire Potato Day, hopefully for some nice early Potatoes.
I potted on 2 pots of Apple Mint and a Polyanthus that I'd brought into the polytunnel when I saw them start to make some leaves a couple of weeks ago. I like to put a few mint leaves in with my Salad Leaves and get a nice minty surprise.
It has now become an annual tradition on the last weekend of January to go to the Hampshire Potato Day in Whitchurch, Hampshire.
I take some other plotholders to fill the car up and we enjoy buying up our Seed Potatoes nice and early in the season.

Retired, I have a 9 rod Allotment with a Greenhouse and a Polytunnel and love growing food.
