Low Calorie Potatoes – Honestly

Harvesting Potatoes

Down to the plot a little earlier today as the temperature was reasonable for a change. I actually managed to remember to take my camera, so took a few shots and then started watering again.

Had a chat with my neighbour on plot 28 as I was watering, who has erected a weather vane on a concrete post on his site, A proud Andalusian bull now shows the wind direction

Over on plot 5, a good soaking for the brassicas and beans as I started digging up more potatoes. These rows are the new Thompson & Morgan Adora, a low-calorie potato by all accounts.

A reasonable crop, although not as prolific as the Arran Pilot I think. Slug damage was minimal and the condition seems pretty good. Next to taste them!

The ground is very dry and hard apart from where I had mixed general-purpose compost into the soil to plant the potatoes in. I couldn’t even get my potato fork into the ground at some points.

Finished up with about the same amount as the Arran Pilot but the Orla have been in the ground longer so the crop per plant is and should be higher
