Decided to reorganize part of the soft fruit bed and move a few things around to make it easier to access the various bushes. Imagine my surprise when I discovered half a dozen good-sized Charlotte potatoes which I’d overlooked last year. I remember sticking a few seed potatoes in last June after I’d cleared some weeds and I thought I’d lifted them all but I must have missed one plant. Had the potatoes for tea and they were lovely. No slug damage whatsoever and in perfect condition despite the severe frosts.

Don’t you just love nice surprises.

  1. Lucky you, they are one of my favourite potato varieties that I grow every year. Flighty.
