This week the kids and I planted out our potatoe patch - approximately 80sqm. I have been spending a bit of time each day turning over the soil, then chopping up the sod with a hoe and hilling up the soil into rows. Then the fun but back-breaking job of planting out the seed potatoes and backfilling.
