|Back on 13th March, I planted a row of potatoes, they had been chitting since the 3rd February in the workshop behind glass. I had actually used about 10 small potatoes that had started shooting in the vegetable basket |
Today, we dug them up!!
The first two out of the ground made promises that the rest of the crop couldn't deliver. I was a little disappointed at the crop of just over 2 kgs (about 5 lbs.) but the real benefit was the huge improvement to the soil in the bed.
I guess, for a few potatoes that were destined for the compost heap, 5lbs of nice looking new potatoes and a lot of good soil isn't too bad a deal.
We're going to eat the first ones at a dinner on Tuesday night, I'll tell you what they are like!!!
