Best crop ever!

Friday wasn't too bad a day with some sunny spells and not too windy. Although we had some rain yesterday the ground was dry and the sprinkler was set to work on the plot.

Our crop of potatoes planted in bags in the greenhouse on 1st April have produced our best ever crop from a potato bag. Normally I expect a rather small crop of at the best medium or egg size potatoes but consider it worthwhile because of the flavour and earliness of the crop.
This bag of Winston emptied yesterday was my best ever weighing in at 1.45kg. The largest is the size of a fine jacket potato.
