I planted my birthday potatoes today. The potato bag is a natty design with flaps (it reminds me of old-fashioned flap-bottomed pyjamas) so you can extract a few potatoes without digging up the whole plant. Not sure it’s really all that useful (I’ve always dug several plants up at once anyway, as they keep) but fun anyway.
The potatoes had already chitted (sprouted) themselves in the packaging. Nice strong shoots.
The frogs have been very busy all week, and the pond has masses of spawn. Last week’s spawn is already showing signs of developing heads and bodies – the newer batch is still small and spherical.
And these are just because they’re cute and pretty.
