Leo's giant spuds


Loe planted one potato out of the tesco bag earlier in the year, (see this post) and it grew and grew. With the bad weather, even though it was really strong, finally it started to succumb to blight. So we harvested it. I have never seen such a great crop from one potato - a yield of 3kg, and lots of huge delicious ones. We have saved seeds - this gene pool is definitely worth saving - and we ate the rest with great delight and praise for Leo.

Leo gives credit for the great growth to his friends, the worms, Don-don, James, and Bendy.
