First potatoes

We ran out of potatoes today. Our potatoes are delivered every week in our veg box. We’ve been enjoying steamed salad potatoes, with chives sprinkled over them, which has totally depleted our delivered potato supply.

So, I collected a garden fork and headed off to the potato patch for the first time this year. The plants are looking good and I found that one plant provided enough for our supper. I took no more than I needed for the meal. Collected courgettes and a sample of broad beans, while I was there. Hmmm. Looks like I won’t be ordering my veg box for a while.

I could have popped down the shops for more potatoes. I don’t know about you, but this is so much better than shopping!

    Nothing like something fresh from your own garden! You get your vegetables delivered to you?

      We have a delivery service that delivers local vegetables, fruit and other products. I find their fruit and veg is fresher and in a better state than the supermarkets. I have had peaches which were hard, from the supermarket, that rotted before they ripened, which was a complete waste. So now if I cannot grow enough, I order a local veg box.

    Potatoes are one of my favorite garden treasures – such a difference from store bought. But wow – how nice to have veggies delivered!

      It nice having veggies delivered. They are all local and fresh. Saying that I’m always really pleased when I don’t have to rely on it, as it means that I’m producing enough in the garden.

    We found cherries, raspberries, tayberries, red-currants, strawberries, courgettes and peas in the garden today – no pots yet but I think they should be ready soon – I LOVE shopping in the garden – it beats supermarkets everytime! 😀

      Wow. You did well. Absolutely, completely, 100% agree with you on the shopping in the garden. The taste alone is better.
