The Maris Piper spuds!!!!!

Well like I said on an earlier post the Arron Pilots have all been eaten now and I am starting on my Maris Piper potatoes. This is a spud I know I like as I frequently buy it in the supermarket. These plants look very healthy on top and were always a lot more lush than the Arron Pilot plants.

a nice healthy plant with plenty of potatoes
The first dug plant...

Above is the first plant that I dug you can see there are plenty of potatoes attached and I was not disappointed as I carried on digging a few more plants up as the all yielded a very healthy crop. I haven't dug up all of the potatoes...only those I needed for a few dinners but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all of the plants have the same amount of potatoes on so that i can enjoy them for a few weeks. They have a lovely flavour and texture and the skins just rub off between your fingers...Perfect!!


  1. The majority of my potato plants are still in the ground as they went in a little late.
    The Maris Pipers look a good crop, I'll have to make a mental note for next year.

  2. Wow, your garden looks amazing. Hopefully we can get a garden going next year. Keep up the good work.

  3. What can I grow in the bed where I have just dug the pototatoes up

  4. I wish I knew Wendy...I myself have been looking for some I can put in my now empty seems such a shame it sitting there doing nothing!!


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
