Last of the Purple Passion

Today we dug the last of the purple passion potatoes.  We only had a small area - half our raised bed and ended up with over 12.5 kilos.  A very pleasing result.

We also dug the first of our Agria potatoes which was a disappointment as we only got 3 potatoes from that plant so hope that the rest give a better yield. 

We are pleased with the crop of the Purple Passion and will be planting them again next year.

The potatoes before I washed then stored them.

  1. It's always so exciting digging potatoes. I used to let the boys (H and O) dig them, and they loved it.

  2. There is something so wonderful about getting your own produce, and new potatoes straight out of the ground are yummy!!! A good crop.

    1. I have always like growing potatoes and at this time of year it makes financial sense as an added bonus.

  4. I love that a potato - that most sturdy and comforting of vegetables - is called "Purple passion"! :)
