:wine: We had our first potato crop recently too, a whole bucketful of potatoes :shock: Only planted 3 :shock: Plan is next year to plant 3 then 2 weeks later another 3 then 2 weeks later another 3 and so on until the medium raised bed is full then will have a steady supply of potatoes :wine:

In pots we have grown carrots (although they were very tiny as the children were a bit over excited planting them :giggle: ) spring onions, strawberries (unsuccessful though :( ) and cherry tomatoes. Have also grown beetroot. Being my first time growing things I didn't know what sort of wuantities I needed so wil be better at it next year and am already planning what I want to grow, where it will grow and if I need to get more pots :giggle: Its a bit addictive really :giggle:
