More New Potatoes
I dug one of my potato plants today. This variety is Red Duke of York. Stunning to look at, but not quite as good in the flavour department. Very floury potatoes that fell apart with even the gentlest of simmering. Probably better as mash. Let's see if the other plants are the same. I prefer the Epicure new potatoes you see in the background here.
I was born 20 yards from our allotment. My parents used to 'dig for victory' and never got out of the habit. I grew up on an allotment, so growing veggies is a way of life. I am also qualified as a dog behaviourist and I have set up my own business, www.blackdogdna.com
