Matthew’s potato donation

This huge box of potatoes was delivered by DPD, I could barely lift it into the house. When Matthew said he was sending seed potatoes, I expected a bag or two. He send twenty one!

My guesstimate is I’ll need the area of another poly tunnel to plant them all. The plan is to plant through a hole in the cardboard and covering the cardboard with organic straw. The straw needs to be organic as many of the farmers use roundup weed killer to stop the barley over ripening and giving them time to harvest it.
