We planted some potatoes in the paddock just out from our house this year, very late and were hoping to get some produce before the frost got too bad. We got a really bad frost (-5) just over two weeks ago and that day the potato plants were black. But thanks to some radio gardening advice we found out that the best thing to do was to leave them in the ground for a couple of weeks and then dig them up. Here is the results of our first potato crop. We are hoping to get another crop in during August.
After digging them up, washing, peeling and slicing, we made our own home grown potato chips. No perservatives or other unknown things but great taste.
We will definately being doing this again very soon.
