Home Grown...

In April the kids wanted to see what would happen if we planted one of the potatoes that had gone to seed. So they both planted a potato and we waited.. and waited.. and waited.. till they really couldn't wait any longer. So today we dug them up to see what our harvest would be. As you can see in the picture (AA battery included for scale) they are not big and there are not many but then that's to be expected from supermarket potatoes that have been chucked into a hole in the ground and left to look after themselves.

Of course we cooked them for dinner - the bigger ones went in first, then 5 minutes later the medium ones and 5 minutes after that the marble sized ones. Served with butter and a bit of salt and pepper they were out of this world!
