Now is a good time to plant your first early and second early potatoes

Plant them in trenches that are 24 inches apart.  The trench should be at least 6 inches deep and v shaped. Potatoes should be 10 inches apart.

Put the potatoes on a good layer of well rotted manure with their chits facing upwards.

These should be ready to harvest in late June after the tops have flowered.
