Potato harvest

We all went down to the allotment at the weekend to harvest potatoes and onions.

Lots of our Desiree potatoes had grown really well but had been attacked buy some pest that had left holes in them. We managed to harvest about 50/50. There are few things that vex me more than being forced to share my food so I’m keen to avoid this issue next year.

A hot dry summer and little time for watering has meant that my onions haven’t grown very large either but at least they are all intact and edible.


Now to start planning for next year and doing lots of weeding.
