Well, I never knew it was Maris Peer creamy new potatoes Prince was singing about?
The experiment of growing potatoes in bags has paid off in terms of beautiful creamy white potatoes, easily extracted with a little fumble, and that barely need rinsing before lightly steaming in a little water.
I think I’d have got more per plant if I’d done 3 seed potatoes in a bag, rather than 5. In this first bag, I got about triple of what’s shown above (…lbs worth). And they do need a lot of watering grown this way, for all those tiny potatoes to swell. I was surprised how dry the soil was… I’m watering the remaining 7 bags of assorted varieties daily now!
Meanwhile, cooked straight from the garden, with plenty of goats butter and a little salt…. Taste and texture?
Baby, there ain’t nobody better.
