w18 Potatoes dug up

The great things about potatoes, you put them in and they sprout.  They all look nice and green, and the little white flowers are quite nice.  They just sit there doing nothing, not much to do with looking after them, they are just there for ages and ages.  Sometimes they die back and it all looks a mess.  But when it comes to digging them up it is the best treasure finding fun you can ever have.  Digging down with a fork or even your hands (in our case our hands digging down into the pot) and uncovers loads of yummy looking potatoes.  They have been growing and sitting there for so many months – and now it is time to eat them.  Yum yum.

Next year, we will be more planned and have two pots!
