Bonus spuds

I cleared another area of the plot today and gave it a top dressing of horse manure which I will leave to overwinter. While forking over the soil and removing weeds I found three Salad Blue potatoes which I'd missed in August.
They are quite difficult to spot in the dark soil and I managed to fork through one of them.Apart from that they have very little damage except from some brown scab which appears standard for this variety and is only skin deep.

They look pretty good after cleaning and peeling, and there's no slug or eel worm damage!

I'm looking forward to eating them as they have a delicious taste and are particularly good for soaking up the gravy.
A must grow for next year,along with some other coloured flesh varieties and perhaps Romano or Shetland Black.
