Not one potato plant on my vegetable plot managed to produce a flower this year. There are still potatoes there in the ground and ready to be eaten. I think the dry weather caused the foliage to collapse early before they had chance to produce any flowers. Although this year will not be a bumper crop year, we still have our own potatoes to eat at a time when they are expensive to buy in the supermarkets.
Someone who likes growing their own food can usually find a reason why it is a good idea to continue doing so next year.

Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
