From Trug to Table

There you go, that's our first potato crop of the year. We emptied the bag where we planted two Chopin potatoes and producing 1.6kg of spuds. It looks like the nematodes worked as the tubers aren't slug-eaten, even though we found several snails living in the haulms.
The compost in the bag was very dry so maybe if we'd watered it a bit more we would have got more tubers from it.
And that's a better looking trug shot.

And that's the beginnings of my tea going in the oven: roasted fennel and courgette, topped with cheese and pine nuts served with fresh boiled potatoes. Mmm, smells tasty so far

    1. It was very nice and the more-browned fennel was the tastiest
