Paul grows his potatoes in tubs; this year he has grown Maris Bard, Red Duke and Charlotte. Yesterday I persuaded him to crop the first tub of Red Duke, the first time he has grown this particular variety.

Scrubbed and then boiled for just 12 minutes with a sprig of mint they were absolutely delicious. We had them with baked sea trout and peas. Today the leftovers were fried to have with an egg and chorizo salad. It's no wonder I find it difficult to lose weight!
The weather has been warm, sunny and dry but a couple of days ago we had a very heavy downpour of rain. Rick had been playing with Mister Bunny earlier in the day and left him out in the garden. Poor Mr Bunny got very wet and had to be hung out to dry. Rick was not impressed.
