First Potatoes of the Year

British Queens , 10th July 2013.
I dug a top of potatoes today. The first of the year.

It was with a degree of trepidation that I eased the graip into the drill. Would the potatoes be ready or would I be unearthing a selection of marbles? Success! The crop was ready. More or less on cue, - ninety nine days from planting to pot. Mint and butter provided a tasty addition to the floury starchiness.
