    Your tatties are huge compared to mine! My biggest are probably only 4 inches tall at the moment, and they got a little frost bitten a while ago, so they don't look great, but they're putting on lots of new foliage. The rest are smaller than that. I did plant out fairly late I thought though.

    My first and second earlies are about that big. Possibly a bit bigger, actually. They're in pots on my patio, so it's nice and warm.
    I'll probably harvest the first lot at the beginning of June, just before I go away on holiday (I also have some other stuff I want to plant in that pot before I go away), and then the rest should be ready when I get back.

    (Apologies for photo quality - really difficult in bright morning sunshine).

    There are also Nicola, Lady C and Maris Bard at the allotment which are a bit bigger as they have more sun.

    Think mine are doing ok. I've got some over wintered purple majesty and a couple of others that I can't remember. 6 bags of rooster and a bag of probably pink fir apple rescued from the compost bin.

    For some reason Pentland Javelin seems behind everything else.

    I only planted my pink fir apple potatoes out last week, they took absolute AGES to sprout this year compared to last so wondering if I've got a poorer crop coming now..fingers crossed anyway
