Can you believe how big Kye’s beans have grown? These are the beans we grew in the egg boxes:)
What an amazing day of harvesting we have had! I have dirt under my nails from digging up potatoes and I love it! This morning I walked out into our veg patch and wondered about wheather our potatoes would be ready to be pulled up. Erin joined me and she pulled out the first plant, wow! It was laden with beautiful potatoes! Our pot potatoes are still young and growing but these were planted a few months ago. These ones are out of our raised beds and it’s the first time we have had such a good crop.
We all got stuck in and dug up the plants, Erin washed and put the potatoes out to dry. We also pulled up onions and leeks that were ready and we even got a few garlic bulbs too. We are going to compost the beds tomorrow and plan what we will plant in them next.
I would really love to find out if there are any South African’s who would like to swap seeds or seed potato varieties, we only seem to have a few seed potato varieties available here and I would love to hear from you if you would like to swap locally. Alas, we can’t swap with anyone from overseas because of our customs control but if anyone local has different or rare varieties of seeds and potatoes that they would like to swap, please let me know:)
