Outside spuds have now put in an appearance and are three inche tall .
The glasshouse spuds had their first earthing up in their bags a week ago , had a look again this afternoon and the sooding things have taken on the attributes of bamboo . They are now a good 18 inches above the fill line. I am adding 20 inch side boards tomorrow and will fill to leave 5 inches proud .
When I looked on Thursday I estimated that they would be OK till Monday . I didn't think that shading the glasshouse with spray on UV transmitting shade would have such an effect . It hit 105 oF early last week and slightly wilted things so that's why i did the shadin g exercise.
It looks like ( hopefully ) I've hit the optimum temps and the right humidity for fantastic growth. Time will tell .
