I've pulled up a third of my charlottes already which are gorgeous and mostly a good size, but I've noticed there are lots of tiny tiny potatoes that are still attached.  Does that mean I'm pulling them up too early and those ones still have to grow?

If the majority are a good size,you are doing the right thing in lifting your earlies. My dad always went by the rule of lifting earlies and lates two weeks after the flowers have dropped from the plant. He's not wrong :D

First try this year at growing spuds, using growbags and growing:

Rocket
Pentland Javelin
Maris Piper
and
Cara

So two earlys and two main crop, two bags of each.

I have a couple of different types of bags some of which have side access flaps. I felt around inside one of the bags of Rocket on Sunday and did manage to find one golf ball size spud to try, which was very nice, as soon as we finish the latest bag of bought Jerseys i'll be attacking the bags with fingers crossed.
