I used a whole day to turn over a new plot on our land last Friday. The reason being is my Wife is suffering from a case of the Joneses, or in this case, the Hansens
We have had potatoes in at the bottom of our small hill for a few years, but have really been struggling with keeping them going, simply because we do not live there and cannot keep the soil environment stable.
The situation is not helped by "Fru" Hansen from the next farm, crowing to my wife about the size of her potatoes, onions etc.
So now I have turned over a new patch in a sunnier part of the garden which should hopefully be easier to drain/water.
Any advice on how to "remote grow" potatoes and onions will be gratefully accepted.
You talking to me?
It helps to know when you will be there and when your not. Straw makes a good mulch that potatoes should push through and yet suppress weeds and give them a good start. Maybe you could do the same for the onions too or cut a cross in that black weed suppressing membrane to put the onions in. Should buy you some time anyway. We used a lot of mulch on our plots this year to keep weeds down, wish we had started earlier with it and reduced our workload earlier.
