Yet more spuds

Planted another two rows of Charlotte potatoes on my Swindon allotment. I still have enough for more rows, but think it may be better to save some space for something else. After all, these spuds must be eaten when just dug, and even in my wildest dreams I couldn't eat that many myself, nor find enough people to give them to. The perpetual spinach and radish are coming up already, so I've watered them both and given the radish a sprinkling of Derris dust, as the flea beetle is on them already. I must buy some slug pellets to sprinkle round them too.

Derris is now banned, I don't know why, but I still have about half a canister left.
