Aftre planting potatoes

I have planted my potatoes in the last week.
They have been sat in their paper bags open to the light in a tray since then.
I bought 6 lots from the Hulme Garden Centre potato day earlier in the year. I bought 5 of 5 varieties and 6 of Ambo.

I’ve planted orla, cara, golden wonder, ambo, colleen and red emaille in rows on last years pumpkin bed. This was a raised area of lasagna bed that had plenty of organic matter in.

The last ambo has been planted over near some first earlies the far side of my plot. I wanted to try this one in a much clayier area to see how it coped.
