Sound advice, except that, once planted, it's hard to get rid of 
potatoes. They keep popping up, year after year, even when I think I 
have grubbed out every last bit. At present I can't see my LAI's for 
potato foliage. They're those little long black ones, which look like 
beetroot on the inside. The LAI's aren't doing so well, but we should 
get a few good feeds out of the spuds.
Cheers, Jan Clark, in Australia
