Digging potatoes

We dig all our potatoes by hand (using garden forks), about 120 to 150 kg per week, to go into our veg boxes (currently about 80 per week), farm shop, and Pendeen Farmers' Market (cancelled this week due to strong winds). We have already dug up all our Casablanca earlies, Bambino salad potatoes, and Maris Peer second earlies, and are into the Cara maincrop (with their pink eyes).

Digging potatoes is a Wednesday morning job, and always a team effort, so if anybody would like to come and help please do so. We usually dig from 9 till 11am, then have a coffee break, before weighing, sorting and bagging them for veg boxes. Our potato patch has sea views unless foggy!!!
