Frosts are coming again!

The weather forecast has temperatures, overnight, of 3 tomorrow, 1 on Saturday and 4 on Sunday so we can expect frost. Most things will stand a ground frost at the moment but not potatoes, particularly first earlies so today an unscheduled trip to the allotment was in order. Rain was scheduled so I quickly put a cover over the first earlies and the rest were all hoed up to cover the growing points - it won't be long before they poke themselves out again. I also managed to JUST finish digging the ground for the maincrops before the rain started in a very serious manner. It was then time to bold for the car and adjourn to the gym. Hopefully maincrops can go in next week.
