Planted up my Anya potatoes after chitting them for about a month with the help of one of our cats who liked to sit on them and keep them warm on the windowsill. Didn’t seem to do them any harm being looked after that way.
So they are now out in the back garden sat next to the Swift potatoes that where planted 0n the 15th of Feb 2012 and are now showing signs of poking through. I still have some Pentland Javelin‘s still chitting, but may plant them up next week as they seem to be getting a bit soft. This is our first go at potatoes and have chosen to grow 1st & 2nd early’s this year, as salad and new potatoes are the most expensive in the shops.
