This is slow work where a little bit of company is appreciated.
The next stage is another slow job.
This machine is a stone separator which throws all the stones to the sides. It allows the potatoes to grow more evenly and makes harvesting much easier.
The ground is then ready for planting the seed potatoes. These are loaded into the planter.
We always grow a variety called Wilja that suits our ground and conditions.
No pictures of planting but here you can see on the right where some are planted and a ridge formed round them.
They are all planted now so we won't be sorry to see some rain in the next day or two.
