New potatoes

Pleased with my first dig of the Orla potatoes.A decent haul from two plants.The tubers are larger than I thought they'd be after just over 11 weeks in the ground.They have a bit of common scab on the skin (which might be due in part to the very dry soil) but clean up nicely.

Also a good harvest of lettuce,chives,parsley and three kinds of chard.The Bright Lights radish are also doing well as an mixer/intercrop and seem less prone to being nibbled by pests when compared the French Breakfast type that I usually grow.
