Our first harvest of home-grown potatoes!

On Sunday Pete harvested the first of our home-grown potatoes from our back garden “allotment” – a variety called Edzell Blues! Of the 10 plants he’s grown he harvested the potatoes from just 2 of them which came to a little over 2 kilos. Apparently our yields would have been even higher if he’d earthed them up or something…

Sadly, the colour (which I think is more of a bright purple than a blue) fades almost completely on cooking. But we’ve enjoyed the potatoes for the last few nights. Tonight Pete roasted them in stock (no oil or butter) and they were even more lovely.

Please leave a comment - I love hearing from you!
