Potato Drama

Unfortunately we had a potato misunderstanding on the allotment this past week. Dave noticed that one rogue tomato plant had got blight so he pulled it up... and all the potatoes. (noooooooo!)

He didn't realise that they were a disease-free variety and now we have around 20 Kg of potatoes to store! I admit that I wasn't best pleased by his actions at the time but I've calmed down and I am now rapidly trying to think of an assortment of ways to store/use the spuds. They are an impressive crop tho. Some of them are HUGE! One measured nearly 6 inches wide! (I gave it away to a mate)
Plus they taste fantastic. :)

I am definitely doing spuds again next year. So basic but so satisfying.
