First batch of potatoes are out of the ground! My youngest was very excited to help me hunt for treasure—we got 1.7kg, perhaps 4:1, which is not brilliant, but they’re lovely big tubers grown from a grocery store potato gone mad in the cupboard. I’m particularly pleased with that result both because my soil isn’t great (yet) and I have never successfully harvested potatoes before. My second lot—these ones in cardboard boxes full of decomposing organic matter—have finally stopped looking violently lush and started dying back, so in a few weeks we’ll get to go on another hunt. I’m almost more excited for it than my son is!
