CIMG3973Here they are! The first ‘crop’ of potatoes from my garden! Very exciting!

Although I don’t have very green fingers, I love the outdoors and if nothing else – have plenty of motivation for growing my own.  Lettuce and rocket are the main growers in the mini greenhouse and I’ve got 4 tomatoe plants on the go (no actual tomatoes yet.)  Apart from Lettuce my main success so far has been 5 weenie, but extremely tasty strawberries.

I don’t have a big garden and it’s all patio so everything is dotted around in pots and tubs.  Many months ago some potatoes we had got left over and started to sprout, so I stuck them in the bottom of a big tub and as the leaves grew up, I kept adding soil to grow the plant right up to the top.  After months of foliage a couple of flowers appeared and then dropped off so I thought it must be time to take a look.  And here are the results! Enough for me and H2B for dinner and lots left for lunch as well! result!

After a quick wash – they came out of the soil practically clean – I boiled them and served just with some butter melted in and a few spring onions sliced on top.  Absolutely declicious!

I’ll definitely be bunging a few more left over spuds in pots next year!
