Digging Potatoes - 10 Aug 2010
First of all, Potatoes, I have grown tons of the damn things. Excellent I shall not be
buying any this year. I will have plenty to eat all through the winter as well as having loads of new potatoes now for salads, or just boiled with butter. The
problem though with potatoes is not planting them or digging the ground is the spring before they are planted. It is getting the blighters out of the ground.
This unfortunately is having to be done in August when it is 35C. I think I have lost 5 kg in swaet just to get them out. There must be an easier way.
So I have been giving this some considerable thought this year and am experimanting with containers. The art of self reliant living, is not to work yourself into an
early grave, but to be efficient in the way you provide for yourself. Or at least that is my slant on self reliant living.
I have an endless supply of manure from both sheep and cows if I need it. This when well rotted down is excellent for growing your spuds in. I have also got]
a collection of old tyres, thanks to the excellent road surfaces in Bulgaria. When ever I have a puncture (5 in the last two years) I always keep hold of the old tyre.
Thinking that I might have a use for them. At last I have found one. When stacked vertically I have experimented growing some spuds this year. If it is successful, I shall
not be digging for victory next year.
