Are they in drills, or potato bags? I know. Stupid question. Is it not a bit early for planting? Hope you can cover them with this frosty weather.

Best of luck with them guys. Had you them chitting or did you sow them direct?

Ive got some chitting atm. Duke Of York for bags, Sarpo Mira for outside.
