 I finally decided to dig out the potatoes, after waiting since October last year. The foliage had begun to die off, and it's been about 4 weeks since the flowers died.
 It was like digging for buried treasure!
 Some were big, some small...but I was excited to see them all

There's that magical feeling..after watering it for months, watching it grow..but never seeing the actual potatoes under the soil, but having faith that they're there..and then finally, one day, digging them up and seeing what you had faith in to see! I'll be using a few in a curry tomorrow.yum!

Well done! Now that is something I never thought of planting - potatoes. Are they easy to grow? Not fussy about soil? I've just emptied our compost bin all over the yard, so there is lots of organic matter to put nutrients into our poor Eltham soil.

they're very easy to grow, these actually just grew from throwing some green potatoes into the soil. they don't need much sun, half a day is fine. just make sure you water them well when the flowers come out and dig them up when the foliage appears to have died down.
