On the 14th. of march we set up a very small veg. bed. see U tube" admirals corner incredidible edible"on the17th. of June we harvested the potatoes. they were first 'Earlies' and made just over 21 lbs. these were bagged up in 2 lb bags and offered to passers by. We had timed the event to catch the 'school run'. and spoke to several neighbours who had seen the plants grow, They were pleased to share in the crop. We think that one or two may have a go at growing some themselves.
One lady called on us the next day to say that her husband had difficulty in eating. He had asked rice pudding for his main meal, his wife tucked into new potatoes and broad beans. He asked if there were any left ?, happily there was and for once he had a proper meal !.
