It was going so well! I was keeping the potatoes watered, I was looking after them, I was taking part carefully in the challenge.
Bag 1 - no incredicrop
So this is the harvest from bag 1 with no incredicrop:
Bag 2 - incredicrop
This is the harvest from bag 2:
Because even with new potatoes size does matter, pea-sized spuds are not the aim. I had prematurely furtled and whilst it can happen to anyone, and whilst it does not matter in the scheme of things and I have successfully grown potatoes in the past; it was still disappointing especially as it was my own fault.
So not a great outcome, it just proves I'm a still learning as a vegetable grower and I need to try harder. I can say that the boast of incredicrop producing more tubers looks correct, but I cannot say anything more conclusive. I nearly did not bother to write this final post, I considered letting the challenge be forgotten, but in the spirit of learning from my own mistakes I thought I should carry on regardless.
I am going to try growing potatoes in bags again, next year I will get it right as it should have been a good sized crop and they take up far less space growing them this way. I am definitely converted to this method of growing.
