Lazybeds by Loch Aineort
Lazybeds by Loch Aineort
Lazybeds are the traditional way of growing crops in small patches of soil. My thanks to Angus Campbell, who tells me that these ones were made by his father Neil, and that his father still cultivates them in 2008, albeit not on this site. NF7728 : Former Lazybeds by Loch Aineort shows the same piece of land in 2008. Only potatoes can be grown, and Neil always plants Kerrs Pink. He starts by spreading seaweed on the ground in February, and then turns the soil to create the lazybeds. The seed potatoes are planted in April, and the crop is harvested from September onwards, depending on the weather. Angus also makes lazybeds, but he says they are not as good as his father's ones.
