The potatoes have appeared!  The only problem is that second earlies are ahead of the first earlies!  There are one or two first earlies poking through, but the second earlies are way ahead.  I can only assume it’s to do with the soil being too dry where the first earlies are.  Or that the second earlies had chitted better before I put them in…

Anyway, the important thing is that there are signs of life after what seems a very long wait!

You have to be very patient to be a gardener, don’t you?  😉
