Our First Harvest of New Potatoes!

Our first crop of new potatoes for this year, and we are really pleased!!

This will be our 3rd year of growing potatoes, but you never lose that excitement and pleasure that you get when you dig up your first plants and find the treasure, I love it!

We planted the seed potatoes called Foremost on the 29th February and these beauties have come from 3 potato plants, which took 12 weeks to get to this
size.
They will keep the two of us and any guests that like to come for supper in spuds for at least a week or two.
 Depending on weather which is glorious at the moment, we could be having a lot of potato salads, or simply boiled with a nob of Cornish butter and some freshly ground black pepper and Cornish sea salt.
They taste delicious roasted in olive or rapeseed oil also.
