I need to plant some. We are blessed with a couple of acres of unused land next to us and it needs to have potatoes growing in it. There are two obstacles. The brambles have stems like oak trees, and the land is owned by someone I’ve never met: but apparently he’s a real nasty. The brambles are lethal but armed with my mighty scythe and trusty rake I’m well on the way to clearing 48 square metres. Mr Nasty is something of an unknown but I feel quite determined that the growing of potatoes on someone else’s unused land is not a moral problem, even if it may become a legal one. Technically that makes me a guerrilla gardener which is quite exciting :-). I do actually think it’s rubbish that we import potatoes from places like Egypt. The only downside is that I will need to purchase 133 early and 211 maincrop seeders. This is an outlay of eighty quid. which is possibly more than I’ve spent on potatoes in my entire life.
