More Potatoes

The container-grown potatoes have now moved out of the greenhouse, but we are continuing to get plenty from the plants.

Here are the ones I brought in today, again by putting my hand down into the soil and pulling out potatoes, to (hopefully) have the plants carry on producing.

Potatoes in the greenhouse

Well, the previous post showed the potato bags and pots in the greenhouse, and that has been a most successful experiment, one to be followed again next year.

I have taken potatoes from three of the bags so far, each time putting my hand down into the soil, in the hope that the plants may carry on, though having grown in the greenhouse they are quite leggy and one issue is that the greater heat in the greenhouse means they do dry out more quickly.

Here is a picture of the produce of the rummage I just did in one bag.
