Earlier this week I harvested the first new potatoes of the year. My potatoes went in the ground a little later than I had hoped, if they were planted earlier I would have had fresh potatoes long before now.
These are ‘Red Gold’ potato, an early potato, reaching maturity at 70 days. When the vines first started to die I thought they were blighted, but then I remembered that they were just a short season potato. We are certainly enjoying these little beauties (I planted them close together so they’d be small). There’s nothing quite like fresh potatoes after being without for 4-5 months!
