This week I harvested my potatoes, Pentland Javelin, which were planted as seed potatoes on 21 March 2015.
In a 40 by 32 inch planting space, I had put in 10 small seed potatoes. The end result was a harvest of 9.1kg or approx 20 pounds.
So far, I've baked them and made chunky oven chips and they taste great. They have a good texture after cooked.
They grew relatively pest free and have a very clean, light coloured skin. I'd definitely recommend them for the Irish weather.
Where I made space, taking out the potatoes, I've planted salad crops (mustard greens, salad bowl, mizuna, and radish) so I can continue my summer salad eating regime.
