Well this is a little exciting, it’s our first little crop of little potatoes! Here we have charlotte, maris peer, and maris piper, ready for the pot.
I calculated that the ‘starter pack’ which included 80 seed potatoes could potentially make over 1000 spuds, but planting them out would take up almost half the garden!
So I planted them into potato bags and squeezed them in where I could.
In hindsight, these were too close to a wall and grew into very leggy plants, desperately seeking more light.
But these early plants had flowered and it was almost 12 weeks since planting, so we emptied out a few bags to harvest our first spuds.
