I don't grow many potatoes now but I do still like to have at least a couple of containers to empty out at harvest time, I don't think you can beat the taste of home grown potatoes boiled with mint and slathered in butter. My mouth's watering just thinking about it.
This year I'm growing Charlotte, mainly because I came across this packet in one of the discount stores and thought that eight tubers for a pound was a bargain. Charlotte is a second early salad variety and very popular amongst those people who 'grow their own'. I've grown them a couple of times myself in the past when I had my allotment but they were planted in the ground. I can't remember ever growing them in containers before.
It's time now to lay them out to chit, basically laying them out in the light (not direct sunlight) so that they'll start to sprout prior to planting. Let the growing season begin.
