Red Duke Of York.[Solanum tuberosum.]

On a morning that has picked up a little weather wise we could be in for another great day.Took a short walk earlier to check around the veg garden.Inside in the tunnel the parsnips and carrots down a few weeks back are doing well.Hope to stay a little longer this afternoon to write up some garden notes.Watering is fine for today and if needed will be done for me tomorrow.

Checked on the seed potatoes that are chitting well and will add on some more  Red Duke Of York,[Solanum tuberosum] [7kg-€12.50] at some stage today.[Collected for me yesterday]

Absolutely gorgeous day here now that the sun is shining full blast, but the beds in the kitchen garden are frozen on top so not much I can do there. Put up 2 low tunnels to see if I can warm the raised beds.

Good to see you are not rushing back in doing too much. Rome wasn't built in a day. And each day you rest up, the better able to tackle the full force of summer growing.
