PJs were beautiful, good yield and quite big as well in for next year. Vales emerald picture perfect golfball sized,best tasting potatoes, "ridiculas/next to nothing" yield not in for next year.
One kid is handful. Two kids.... Example for chaos theory. Hats off to my mum who managed three...

Dunluce, Epicure and Sharpe's Express are my chosen 3 from a dozen or so varieties that I have grown over the last few years. I am hoping to give Casablanca a go next year, sounds good !

Sharpes Express getting a lot of love in here! :-) Now I'm sure I'm gonna grow them again next year, as it wasn't just me who had good results.

Since its a cold wintery day here I've been spending the time wisely, looking through seed suppliers and planning and plotting for next year!! :D (its never too early... i'll have changed my mind six times before i get around to ordering! :D

I grew Premiere this year so I've ticked 'others'.
 I had almost given up on growing spuds because of slug damage.  As a last resort I tried these and got a good  crop.  I'd never heard of them before but they grew well and had minimal slug damage even tho some were left in the ground quite late.  They didn't have the new potato taste after the first 2-3 weeks of digging them but the ones left in the ground went on swelling and they made lovely mash, roasters and bakers.  They did have a small amount of scab but nothing to worry about.
 I thought they were excellent and will grow double the amount next year :)

Thanks to all who have taken part. :) We'll close the voting tomorrow as you should all have harvested by now (apart from Christmas tatties).

Well done Argyllie!  :)

Glad to see Lady Chrystl look as if they have been pipped at the post; might make it just that little bit easier for me to buy them in a few months time!  ;)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

Ah PJs came first............a class spud, and mine were 10 in a pack from the poundshop :)

You can't get better value than that ;)
I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

Well in every one of the potato polls the old varieties have came up tops. Is that because more people grow the older varieties and haven't tried the newer ones?

I can feel another poll coming on :D
