This year we grew two potato crops: Charlotte variety for second earlies and King Edwards for maincrops.
The Charlottes have been delicious, if modest in number. Their savoury, firm flesh is a joy boiled or sautéed.
The King Edwards only came out of the ground yesterday afternoon, pictured above. This was a better crop, 12lb (5.5Kg) in total. I washed and photographed a few, to submit to the Virtual Show competition on the Grow Your Own web site. I had the great fortune to be overall winner of the competition in 2013, but there are 29 categories in total so I’ve a lot more photography to do before the closing date.
Meanwhile, last night Mrs. D used those very same potatoes to make the tastiest chips (with steak) I’ve eaten in years. Yum!
