Harvesting Potatoes

September 12, 2010 at 12:17 pm Leave a comment

Yesterday I harvested my first proper batch of spuds, they wern’t as good as i thought they would be but thats what it’s all about, learning for next time round. In total from 3 plants I got about 20 or more good sized spuds and the rest were salad size. They didn’t cost me anything as I got them from the cupboard where they’d been forgotten, so I chitted them and planted them about april time, every time the shoots reached the surface I would add another handful of soil to encourage more tubers, but it didn’t work as successfully as i thought it would. So next year I will definately be buying the potatoes from a garden centre so then i’ll actually know what variety i’m planting.

What variety of potatoes do you grow ?
