This year I have stuck with what I know. First early - Rocket
Second early - Charlotte
And two main crops Desiree and Cara
I'm trying Cara for the first time as a neighbouring plot holder has said it always does well in our soil. I usually grow Picasso which is similar but last year's crop wasn't the best; lots of scabs
He has also given me four Swift tubers to try as he was really pleased with his last year
I also bought some Sturon onion sets and Pink Pikant shallots
Not bad for about £7!
It's always a bit chaotic in the allotment shed shop. It's a dark lock up garage but it's packed to the rafters and the prices are ridiculously low compared to shop prices.
We are lucky to have it
I put the tubers in egg boxes straight away so they could start chitting. Didn't take long for one of the cats to guard them for me....
