Mill farm planting - bottoms up

Mill farm planting - row of spudsThe new Jersey Royal season –  commentary from William Church, director of sales and marketing at the Jersey Royal Company:

‘Planting has been gathering pace since the start of the year when staff returned to the Island.
As is always the case, there is a certain amount of having to dodge around to avoid the showers, and careful planning is required to ensure that teams follow close behind to get the plastic covers on before it rains again.
Many of the early slopes have now been planted and covered, including the iconic côtil in front of Gorey castle.
Attention is now turning to some flatter fields which means that machines can be used, which speeds up the process.
Indoor crops continue to flourish and are on course to be lifted towards the end of February.’
