We started harvesting the new potatoes we planted in the potatoes growing bags that we bought at the car boot last year.
The Japanese over winter onions had started to bolt and look like they wanted to set seed. I'm not surprised with the unseasonally very hot weather that we have had in all of Ireland for the last two weeks or so.
We are eating more of the new potatoes and onions tonight. My late father would have said that we picked them too small. But to me that's what a new potato should be. Small is beautiful.
You can rub their skin off with your finger nails. The new potatoes 🥔 are absolutely delicious and you can't buy anything so fresh in a supermarket or drop.
Once again it resonates with me that you don't need to be Middle-class or have a garden or allotment to grow your own vegetables.
