Maincrop potatoes

These are a bit disappointing this year, but hardly surprising given the conditions we've had. I cut the leaves off at the first signs of blight about a month ago so they're on the small size, and at least half are affected by wireworm. I'll store them in trays rather than sacks so that I can keep an eye on them over the coming weeks and months. Still plenty to keep me going so at least I won't starve.
