potato harvest!

potatoharvest Potato harvest!

Our potato plants have been looking a little sad and yellowing and some were starting to die, (no idea why: too much water, not enough water, not enough room, too many slugs…?), so we thought we’d dig up the most pathetic of them and this is what we got! Young Indiana and I are very pleased. :)

They’re Maris Piper variety, which are as close to Yukon Gold as I’ve found here. V. tasty. We were very excited at finding the biggest one in there, and this was from our small growing container, so I hope there’ll maybe be some full-sized potatoes in the bigger ones. :)


  1. When were they planted? Did they blossem? If so they may be done.

  2. Yellow Finn is the best of the Yukon Gold type of potato – great if you can find them.
