Spuds - the sequel!

Here's my crop of Vivaldi potatoes (and a couple of Red Duke Of York) ... I am a little bit disappointed with my yield. I feel that I have put in a lot of time and effort with the potatoes (which I am growing in barrels) and I haven't got many potatoes in return.

I might have emptied this barrel too early, but the potatoes had flowered and the greenery had died down, so I figured that the time was right ... hmmm

I still have two more barrels (with Duke of York and Charlotte's) I'll just have to wait and see how those turn out!

Is anyone else growing spuds in containers? I'd be interested to hear how you are getting on with them! Have a look at last year's crop here
