More autumn harvesting, spud time!

 So today we dug up the last of the 1st early Rocket potatoes, there is about 25lb here, so I estimate the total yield to be about 60lb (27kg) not bad from an inital purchase of 3kg.
In the space left after digging up the Rocket spuds we planted 48 Solent Wight garlic cloves. No space goes to waste even with winter just around the corner. 
As the foliage had completely died away from the Cara potatoes, I dug up the remaining 6 rows, there is about 130lb here add 16lb from the test row dig that makes 146lb (66kg) from a purchase of 6kg. I call that a result. 
Other harvests today: 
Runner Beans, Green Beans, Purple Peas, Tomatoes, Red Pepper, Raspberries & Blueberries. 
Parsnips too. 
The last of the sunny days for a while and perfect potato digging weather, leaving them to dry before storing in Hessian sacks.

Rain most of next week!

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
