    Morning all, white over again but this time its just a hard frost. Waiting to hear if I get my second covid vaccine on the 11th or whether its postponed , rang the surgery yesterday but they were not sure. Early potatoes from Wilko’s Rocket have grown them for the last 2 years, they do mature quickly
    • Morning Tony :-) Fingers crossed for your second jab :fingers-crossed: So good to see your chitting time has begun :good:
      • Good morning Tony, when you say that the spuds [rocket] mature quickly, if I grew them in a bag, when could I be likely to harvest big ones for baking please? [I grew some in a bag last year and hoped to have them for Christmas but they arrived too early and were nevertheless small as well. :-( ] :rose:
        • First earlies Anne are not meant to grow to baking size, you need a main crop potato for that
          • Ah, my ignorance is NOT bliss Tony … thank you very much :good: I shall search fo a big-growing maincrop :good: :rose:
