2nd crop of home grown spuds!

Do you recall this post about the red potatoes we grew in a tub. Well yesterday the second crop was ready to harvest. These were a smaller, white variety, and a different shape. I am planning on cooking some for dinner tonight so I hope they taste as good as they look.

This is two down and one tub left to go for this year! We may expand a bit next year all being well.

yum. my mom brought me some home grown 'taters' and I've selfishly only eaten 2 of them, scrubbed, skin and all, and "baked" in the microwave. I'd just bought 10 lbs from the store, which are nowhere near the quality of the homegrown ones. i will have to make something out of them so i can share the new ones with the hubby. yum yum!

They look lovely! I haven't harvested my potatoes yet. Your post has made me realize that I should probably do that.

Very nice!
Coincidentally (or not, better check with Mother Nature), we harvested our last load of potatoes yesterday. It was a happy experiment, and like you, we'll try it again.

The before and after are just stunning - one of the few I've ever seen where the after looks better than the before!

Oh they look yummy! I could really use some nice new potatoes right now I seem to have had nothing but chips lately!

thats a lot of spuds for the small space you have.
I remember my mom making "creamed new potatoes and peas" -- and we were all just scarfing it down like dessert.

mmmmm they sure do look good, and I bet they taste gorgeous too.

They look great Chris. They even look fresh, certainly fresher than what I buy in the shops.

lil mouse the skins are so tender when they are new

debbie you can't beat them

sam very little scrubbing they cleaned so easily.

beckie & karmyn don't give the pests time to get at them!

beccy you do well from Clare

john oooh yes butter

CC I don't want shop bought after tasting these!

judy normally I'm not a big potato eater, although I do love jacket potatoes.

kitten it's easy to do but you don't get a very big yield

jan we still don't know the variety I will be better organised next year.

barbara wish I was close enough to share

Oh Great Job! They look perfect! Ours have just started growing, hope we get a crop like that too!

They looks delicious and potatatos from the own garden are the best!
