First Potatoes

We've planted our first potatoes of the year yesterday, an experimental 3 bags of swift first earlies, a bag each for my wife, son and myself. We're having a competition to see who can grow the heaviest yield. The potato bags will be kept in the greenhouse on our half plot until there's no threat of frost, then they'll go outside. I'm hoping to get new potatoes in under 12 weeks, but we'll see.

I also took the sweet peas in the loo rolls to the greenhouse too.

As you can see the garlic has come up (3rd shelf down) and is romping away, this will go in when I plant my onions and shallots. 
I've also potted on the first of my tomatoes into small 6cm pots.
