I planted my Salad Potatoes, Pink Fir Apple, today. They have been happily chitting on the kitchen windowsill for about a month. Ideally, I would chit them in the shed near a window but the mice can’t be trusted after they swiped my heritage varieties a few years ago.
I planted them about 10cm deep, and covered them over with a small mound. I only did one row this year. I was tempted not to grow Potatoes at all as they do take up a lot of room in a small garden. But I couldn’t resist putting in some Salad Potatoes so that when the Broadbeans and Spring Onions come in I can make my seasonal Potato Salad recipe.
