Anyway, somewhat later than the actual event, here is my pictorial story of my triumphant potato harvest.......All good gifts around us.....
Off to the garden. Hmm....slim, model-like figure there..... ;-)
Attempting to dig them up. Problem: because they're growing in a tub the roots are all tangled up together....
....and I can't pull them up as I'd hoped.
Right! Time for the secateurs!
Rueful look at all the foliage cut down. (Bunny feasted on these later!)
Aha. A hand fork works!
The whole crop from one tub. Now to scrub, cut and cook them.
The onion harvest, drying on the lawnmower box. A couple of these to cook too.
The finished dish! I was surprised and disappointed to find the beautiful pink colour disappeared when cooked, but they still tasted delicious. The highest praise came from teenage daughter (who took all the photos by the way) who pronounced them to be "right good". Praise can go no higher!
