Please don't tell my neighbours
Belana ready to be planted.
Gardening season in this part of Slovakia starts on the first of May. Everything, early vegetables, late vegetables, is sown on that day. Potatoes are planted even later, after the Ice Saints (11 - 13 May). So putting them in now is commiting sacriledge. I did the same last year (on the 8th of April) with my Belanas and Scarlets and got a wonderful crop of very early potatoes.
Ratte d'Ardeche and Vitelotte Noir have started to sprout but will be planted later together with the variety Viola.
