    Cultivation Policy

    "Cultivation” and, more importantly “non-cultivation”, can mean different things to different people and can be interpreted in various ways. If you look around the site, you will find that there are almost as many different styles of cultivation as there are plots. It is certainly not necessary to maintain strictly regimented rows of vegetables.

Growing Oca's On

How to Harvesting Oca

Tips for Harvesting:

  • Oca will be ready to harvest towards the end of November after the first frosts have killed off the tops.
  • I usually like to wait till the tops have died nearly completely all back before I dig mine up as I have found the tubers to have swelled further by this time.
  • Then dig them up much as you would a potato taking care to find all the tubers otherwise like the humble spud they will grow again next year!
  • They will last in the ground, so you can dig them as you need them, but if you have a slug problem these do like to munch on your tubers.
  • They store for weeks in the refrigerator.

Time to do some groundwork

We get a glimpse of the early signs of the arrival of Spring this month. The soil begins to warm up around the middle of February and we can see for the first time this year the buds beginning to swell on fruit trees and bushes. Overwintering vegetables begin to look less sorry for themselves and they start to produce new growth.

Sow seed outdoors
Vegetable growing really takes off this month. Chit and plant out second early potatoes in the first half of the month, maincrop potatoes in the second half. It's also time to sow seed outdoors in well-prepared soil.
