    Pre-move harvest

    Potato 'Dutch cream' Harvesting and Previous house backyard garden
    I decided that the shopping trolley probably wasn’t structurally sound enough to survive the journey up the road full to the brim of dirt, so I emptied the dirt into four enormous flower pots and fossicked out the potatoes. I didn’t get heaps but I got enough to be excited about tryin...

    Little treasures

    Potato 'Dutch cream' and Previous house backyard garden
    Curiosity got the better of me (besides which I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with these potatoes when I move- harvest them first, or go to all the ridiculous effort of pushing this shopping cart 3km up the road to my new house?), so I pulled out the deadest-looking potato plant a...

    Horizontal potato

    Potato 'Dutch cream' and Previous house backyard garden
    Was very excited to discover this potato plant growing straight out the side of the trolley today- it’s poked it’s way through the hessian lining and is reaching for the sun! No idea how long it’s been there for, it’s quite big now but I’ve obviously never noticed it...

    Starting to slump

    Potato 'Dutch cream' and Previous house backyard garden
    These plants had lost their flowers by the time I got home, although they’re otherwise reasonably healthy looking- I expect the pretty huge size of the ‘container’ they’re growing in protected them from drying out too much. I noticed today though that one of the plants is ...

    Flowering

    Potato 'Dutch cream' and Previous house backyard garden
    Definitely flowering- quite lovely white flowers. It’s interesting at this point I can clearly see the difference between the two types of potato I’ve got in here by the leaves. No idea which is which of course but the leaves are very distinct.

    Potato flowers

    Potato 'Dutch cream' and Previous house backyard garden
    Well, the buds of them, anyway. These have appeared on most of the potato plants in the trolley, which surprises me a little- I thought they’d be bigger before they got to this stage. Then again I’ve never seen a potato plant growing before, so what do I know?

    Mostly showing

    Potato 'Dutch cream' and Previous house backyard garden
    I’m concerned I might have lost my middle potato plant in the last hilling up- that was the compost seedling, I was kind of fond of that one. Ah well. Here is the completed trolley o’ potatoes, aka my first potato-growing experiment. This trolley has two window boxes wired into one si...
