Seconds and mains
« on: April 10, 2018, 17:14 »
Hi all,
After a fortnights holiuday I returned home hoping to be able to plant the rest of my spuds but it is so wet I cant touch the ground, the sprouts on the Kerr Pinks are about 6 long and it doesnt look like I will be able to try and plant them for at least another week. Will they be ok?
Regards
Roccinante
Regards,
Roccinante

Next week looks to be the end of the semi-permanent November with some warm sunny weather, they should be able to wait that long. I planted my mains in wet conditions last Sunday, not ideal but if the weather is going to continuously make gardening as difficult as possible I felt it had to be done, and hope they don't rot.

Hi,
My concern is the length of the shoots, i shall break some off in planting them and hopefully wont damage them to much.

If they are really long shoots like that, I would be tempted to rub the lot off now and let them make fresh new ones.  If they go in a week from now or even later, the crop will obviously be delayed, but they will get there in the end.

I love that description of this spring as being, semi-permanent November. Frustrating but accurate
