This must be the worst year ever for potaoes,although first earlies did reasonably O.K., Kestrel and King Edward have been a real poor show.
Last year both gave me 2x 25kg bags of spuds, this year about half a bag each.
The K.E especially poor, a lot of very small tubers still attached to the roots which appear to have never got going at all, and of course this year I can't blame a lack of water.
Peas have been just as bad, Beans have never got going,so only really got Onions, and a few of these have bolted, and Garlic left to look forward to,
