This year she had recovered from her obsession: she planted only 35 varieties!
Sue is an adventurous cook so when she and Craig invited us for lunch at their house on the side of a mountain we expected to eat potatoes.
And we were not disappointed.
There was chicken and salad, but they took a back seat to a potato feast, which included Spanish omelette made with King Edwards, smashed Nicolas,
Boiled Salad Rose and Pink Eye:
Baked Toolangi Delight:
And wedges of Spunta and Up to Date :
The piece de resistance, however, had to be the dessert. Mashed Kestrel mixed with blueberries and dipped in dark chocolate together with mashed Saphire mixed with coconut and vanilla and dipped in white chocolate!
How about you? What type of spud do you like best? And what's your favourite method of cooking them?
Late last year Sue planted 40 types of tomatoes. It's a bit early to see the results of that experiment but right now there is lush growth in the sprawling vegetable garden beds that Craig dug and fenced. We're looking forward to a tomato feast now.
