Final Cupboard Potato Update

Today I harvested Cupboard Potato and his friends. I didn’t get a many as I hoped for, but still got a plastic shopping bag full. Strangely, I got everything but Yukon Golds, I don’t know why they didn’t grow (or I’m confusing some of them with small russets, but I’m pretty sure they weren’t in the same pot). Lots of purple and red ones though! The purple kind were hard to find in the dark soil.

I’m not sure why this is all I got. Both pots only had potatoes in the bottom foot or so. I think drainage was part of the problem, one definitely wasn’t draining well, and I didn’t know it. Water would run out the bottom after watering, but not enough. I guess I’ll just have to try again next year. :-)
