The potatoes, weighing-in at 1.86kg are the yield from two pots. "Charlotte" is the best performer so far, with the yield from each pot (each with one seed tuber) averaging just a fraction below one kilogram.
The high organic matter content of the compost is certainly keeping the potatoes looking nice and sleek. There are hardly any blemishes at all.
As well as "Charlotte", I also harvested one more pot of "Balmoral". That's 3 pots of this type used, and one still left.
We had salad too, of course.

Although I have not had much off these broccoli plants, let's not forget that they are really only a catch-crop making use of the space round about the Brussels Sprouts before they get too big, so it's not fair to expect much of them. I have done the same thing with the bed containing my PSB - in the spaces around them I have put 8 plants of Brokali "Apollo".
My expectations of the Brokali are on a par with those concerning "De Ciccio". Any crop will be seen as a bonus.
This is my entry for Harvest Monday, hosted as ever by Daphne's Dandelions.
