Guest blogger, Meyles, speaks about spuds:
Tonight we ate these spuds. Mouth-watering Desiree spuds that were growing in our garden just hours before.
1.6 kg of fresh spuds from 2 plants that I dug this morning.
In June I planted 6 certified seed potatoes and it did not take too long for them to come up.
Here is the next batch I am growing. I am growing them in a planter box so that I use much less space. As they grow I add more soil on top until the box is full. I then put another box to add height and fill it with more soil. I have raised the height to 60cm and filled it with soil. The spuds are looking good and in 6 weeks I will be eating fresh Pinkeye potatoes.
To most people they will not appreciate the significance of Pinkeye potatoes, but being raised in Tassie, it is a well known fact that there is nothing better than boiled Pinkeye potatoes lathered in butter and sprinkled with salt.
