First Potato Harvest

Today I harvested my first ever successful potato plant, which may seem strange because spring has only just started. I planted these potatoes back in May during Autumn and we have such a great climate that they grew right through winter. Even though the plants got pretty battered and banged during our late winter storms, I still managed to pull this bounty from one of the plants today. This is the first time I have planted potatoes in the ground and the first time I have gotten any sort of potato harvest. So from now on I think I will stick to planting directly in the ground.
Just over 2.6kg, I am very pleased.

  1. Well done :) I planted sweet potatoes in bags and got half a pockets worth. Great feeling, isn't it :)
