Disappointing Potato Harvest

They looked to be going great guns. Lush green foliage, lovely delicate purple flowers, and then dying back in just the right way. Textbook perfect potato growing.
Until the harvest that is. I think we may just have enough for a meal for the 5 of us from the 6 plants that were planted. I am a little gutted, if I am honest.

Some of them had scab, while while after peeling are still edible, the size of them means that there wouldnt be much left.

I sure hope they taste nice after all this!

The christmas potatoes are going in next week, so hopefully we will have more luck with them.
