The Vivaldi Potatoes that were planted on 30 April have emerged in the Plot.
The stems will grow and the new leaves will get bigger, producing what is known as the haulm.
The Chef planted the Maris Bard earlier because it is an early variety. They are getting a bit leggy, and this often happens when plants are covered up. The Chef did cover the Maris Bard with fleece for a while to protect against the frost.
