Spud planters

We had a request from one of our gardeners to grow some potatoes. Our soil isn't very suitable for deep crops so, we looked in a book, and made some pallet-wood planters instead. They are by the water trough for easy watering.

One of our social walkers had some leftover chitted seed potatoes - one is Ratte and the other type lost its label. We planted them in some (posh organic) loam-based compost (from the allotment shop) and then added a layer of (not very posh) garden compost. As they grow (we hope), we will add extra layers of pallet wood and, hopefully, share the crop sometime soon.
