Mystery Surprise

nzjewel is talking about growing Something else from Waikato

Garden ready!

Early in September I planted many different varieties of potatoes – one, named “Mystery” (as the seller didn’t know the name of the variety), didn’t grow as well as the others – the leaves went a little yellow etc. Hubby and I decided that we wouldn’t grow that sort again….

Today I saw that the Mystery potatoes had “done their dash” so decided to harvest. I fully expected to get a handful of marble-sized taters…. I was pleasantly surprised – I did get a heap of “marbles” but also some decent spuds too.

I’m not sure how many I planted / harvested – I started out with 12, but the rats got into my seed potatoes…… I ended up with a good bucket full. So, I think I will grow more next year.
