potatoes - negative ROI

the extended rainy season and the shortened winter period put paid to our potato aspirations.

one bed was wiped out by the wilt and one bed was lost in transplanting (we planted originally in the wrong place).

total planted weight = 3 kgs
total output = 2.5 kgs

and we attempted mounding to promote additional tuber development, which also flopped.

we have realised that there are other tubers which grow in our climate and are planning to expand our tuber portfolio.
