Its been 84 days since we planted the 3 bags of early Swift potatoes in the greenhouse. I paid £1 for 8 seed potatoes so nothing to lose really as I used last years compost. This morning I watched Dan from the allotment diary.co.uk harvest his early potatoes which were in the polytunnel for about 70 days I think. So when I went to the allotment to lock the greenhouse up this afternoon I decided to empty one of the bags (one with my name on it). I'd put 3 seed potatoes in the bag but only two had grown the other had rotted off in the bottom of the bag.
Here's a photo of the potatoes.

I've added a few photos from the new greenhouse on the full plot.
