We're heading into what is normally our wettest month, so I thought it was time to lift the potatoes so they don't rot in the ground or start sprouting everywhere.

We've already harvested some in the last few months as we wanted them for eating so I can't give a total tally, but today after clearing the 2 potato beds I have just over 10kg of spuds. Lovely!

In general they are smaller than last year - I think that's because I didn't get my watering quite right. The ruby lou and spunta seem to have produced the biggest spuds.

I'm going to leave them to 'dry' out of the sun for today, then I'm going to store them in broccoli boxes in straw and/or rice hulls this year to see how that works.
