One potato, two potato, three potato, four!

Today Austin, Nelson and I harvested our first potato crop.I think I only planted about 8 seed potatoes and this is what we dug up. They weighed about 17.5kg. I don't know if this is a good amount but we were very pleased with it. Everytime we thought we had finished we'd find more potatoes!Even Ginger came in to help. Next job is to pick the silverbeet. Still waiting on the tomatoes to turn red!

Oh Christine that is awesome!!!!! They look fabulous!! We dug up a heap of sweet potatoes the other day. We cooked a few small ones the other night and yum!!! We had so many we've given a heap away to the neighbours, and we have more vines starting to grow again! lol
