But the potatoes look surprisingly well, despite the fact that the non-blight resistant varieties died off some time ago. The Sarpo Mira and Sarpo Axona still stand and look good.
Last week, we did a first trial with our potato digger. We had difficulties setting it right and more adjusting is needed to get it dig deep enough to be able to spin out all potatoes. But one of the important aspects of the project - introducing the horses to the spinner - was no problem at all, they actually enjoyed the heavy steady pull.
