Splitting them into half for each of us meant this is what we got.
Was it worth growing them?
Yes, is the resounding answer. They didn't take much watering with all the rain we've had recently, they were tucked away out of sight of either of our houses just in front of the shed and most importantly of all ... they taste delicious.
So much so that I am just about to put in some more potatoes that should be ready in time for Christmas. This time I have got some posh new potato buckets to grow them in courtesy of a special offer from the gardening magazine that I posted about HERE.
I've been missing from my blog for a couple of days as I have been busy Olio-ing.
Sharing things that I no longer want with people who do want them or who can make use of them in any way that they choose. I started with a bag of food that I just knew I would never get around to eating, and then because you can also give away non-food items I carried on by giving away all the things that I have been sorting out from my kitchen cupboards.
I even had a good sort through of my stationery stash and gave lots of notebooks, pens and pencils to a young single Mum with two boys that needed some for now to keep them occupied during the school holidays and some more for going back to school with.
I still have other things listed and it's a good feeling to know that items I no longer need are going to a really good home. And of course it immediately gives me more space in my small home instead of having items that I've recently sorted out just sitting around.
Have you ever used Olio?
