Potatoes are growing well. Cant drive the LGT 100 over them any more to cultivate or hill them. All by hand now. Thinking about getting a small tiller to go between the rows and have a hiller for it. But not sure if I want another small engine thing to look after. Noel

Noel, you are a bit ahead of us although we were really late planting this year. Vesseys sells an electric version of the Mantis garden tiller if you really don't want another engine to look after.

Looking good!

Do you guys ever get those nasty bugs that eat the whole plant? I get those about every other year it seems :(

Pepper mixed with water, spray mist underneth leaves after rain or watering, helps.

Black Pepper?

Yes, or hot sauce diluted with water, not too strong, just enough to deter them.

How do you fix them up, what u put on them?   I usually slice them up, salt/pepper and wrap them in foil, drizzle with olive oil.
