We had our first new potatoes of the season for dinner tonight. The variety - Red Duke of York. They were so yummy. It was a bit early to lift them and we'll lose some yield - but it was worth it.

Our strawberries are also cropping well - best we've ever had. The varieties are Florence and Pegasus. In fact, we're struggling to eat them so I'm going to make jam tomorrow.

Dan also picked the first ripe raspberry tonight and let me eat it. Lovely man.

I've grown Red Duke of York this year too , for the first time. I had gone to the garden centre late and had little choice left, lucky really as I really like them so hope to have more next year.

Next year I'll probably grow only these - they store very well too, and are so versatile.
