We thought it would be fantastic, growing our own vegetables, tending them, cropping them, and eating them, but no-one told us that growing potatoes would actually be fun!
We decided to dig up our first crop on Sunday, as we had friends staying with us and thought serving our own food would be pretty cool. We knew the basic theory: plant a few seed potatoes and they automagically turn into loads of potatoes…
But the bit that no-one told us? It’s like digging for buried treasure, except better because you can eat the treasure at the end! Even Leoma was excited – her tail was wagging faster than my camera shutter!
And here’s our loot: Woo hoo!
