Choice Of Spuds

I’ve just recently purchased the seed potatoes for this season.

As usual, I am planting my favourite first early ‘Arran Pilot’. For the second early I will be planting ‘Nadine’ which is another favourite. As a main crop I am going to try the variety ‘Estima’. I have not read about this one. and know nothing about it, so am looking forward to see how it produces, and more importantly how it tastes.

The empty egg box is at the ready to sit the variety ‘Arran Pilot’ seed potatoes in order to ‘chit’ them prior to planting out.

Because I have a second allotment this year, I will also plant a potato crop there too. Maybe King Edwards, or a variety I have never tried before. Watch this space…
