Potato Competition – Harvest time

Last week we harvested our potatoes!

 Our crop of the ‘Rocket’ variety.

 Our crop of ‘Picalo Star’ variety.

The Rocket variety had more rough skins but produced bigger potatoes and more of them. The Picalo Star variety had waxy skins and were smaller.

We were in competition with Mr Burford too. He harvested his potatoes and brought them in for us to compare with our crop. So far, we have grown bigger and heavier potatoes than Mr Burford. Our next challenge is to find out which potatoes are the easiest to peel and which are the tastiest! We think we can win this challenge too! Watch this blog to find out the results…..
