Maincrop potatoes will be ready to harvest once the tops have died off. Two weeks before you lift the crop, cut the top growth back to ground level. Once lifted, leave to dry for 2-3 hours before storing. Spring cabbages and winter onion sets can now be planted. Continue to harvest your apples, pears, raspberries and blackberries. Berries can be frozen for use later in the year.
