    Your spuds look lovely - they'll be beautifully flavoursome, especially as they're so petite. Well done you.
    Cheers

    that made me chuckle, petite wasn't quite the word i had in my head, and can just imagine sons face when he gets 2 of them on his plate *wonders if i should do mash or roasties lol*

    but they are quite cute aren't they, i'm itching for them to get bigger now so i can dig them all up .... it really is a very exciting moment.

    Potatoes are my absolute favourite thing to grow. I love the waiting, digging up and discovering what the crop is like, the satisfaction of storing away for winter like some medieval peasant, then that meal when everything on the plate is homegrown....you can't beat it..... But then, I am easily pleased.

    As my ole Nan used to say 'Patience is a virtue'........no, I never understood it either.
    As for the medieval peasant thing.......thinking about it, they didn't have spuds did they?
