Green manure cut down and potatoes planted

Took the opportunity to cut down the green manure and drop the seed potatoes into the warming soil. Four varieties comprising Sebago & Ruby Lou in one bed with Nicola & Desiree in the other. Its amazing just how much the straw & chicken manure have mulched down so it required a little bit of muscle on the end of a spade to cut a deep enough slot to deposit the seed potatoes into. Good thing is the potatoes will break up the soil and if I keep mulching them as they grow we’ll have more than enough spuds to fill our tummies.
