I planted one first early seed potato in a pot in the greenhouse.
The variety Vanessa
is a first early.
I had a little poke around the surface of the pot today and to my surprise I found a decent sized potato.
I couldn't believe that so soon I could have such a lovely little treat. There is nothing in the world quite like your own, first early new potatoes.
Mother nature also had it in mind that fresh mint should also be available at just the right time.
Just a run under the tap was all it took to clean these up. No scrubbing.
Just 20 minutes of steaming under fresh mint and these were ready for a knob of butter. Perfect!
