The dry warm weather has finally meant that the ploughed ground could be harrowed, the beds formed and the stones removed.
The seed potatoes were then planted at the beginning of this week. This was not without problems. Some of the seed had begun to sprout which effects the strength of the seed and makes it difficult to feed through the planter.
Planting was well underway by Tuesday afternoon.
It is a relief they are in the ground. We will now soon be wanting some rain to help them grow. Farmers are rarely happy with the weather!
