Our potato plants grew rather large.....

 I have been worrying for weeks that there were actually no potatoes in the planters because the plants seemed to have put so much energy into growing upwards.  As we decided not to enter the competition in the end, we harvested one container on the 'Potatoes For Schools' day and the other one when we needed them - which was today!  

These were Charlie's....

....and these were James'.

We weighed James' spuds and he had 3lb. 

We cooked them tonight. I really wanted the boys to try them so we roasted them as we know Charlie will eat potatoes this way.  He ate them all up, James didn't want to taste, which is fine, we just keep offering!
