Potatoes

We grew a bunch of volunteer potatoes (from last year’s patch and a compost trench) in the veggie patch and intentionally planted ones in the quasiallotment plot.

Although so far I’ve only plucked a few from the soft soil in the veggie patch (top photo) and harvested about 8 small plants from the plot, those from the veggie patch yielded larger potatoes.

This could be for several reasons because the veggie patch soil is softer and richer and the plants were also ‘ planted’ earlier.

The first harvest was dug up on the last week of August and the rest are soon to come.
