Things to do in the garden during lockdown day 52: earth up the potatoes

Earthing up potatoes keeps the tubers away from the light and stops them going green, and also makes for a bigger crop.


Today is my last bout of earthing up my potatoes in their container. Now it is just a case of remembering to water and judging the right time to harvest them. If yours are in the ground you can keep on going with more soil, the more of the stems that are covered with soil the more tubers they produce. Roll on those spuds.
