The name of these pink skinned potatoes escapes me but they are my favourite variety. I purchased the seed potatoes originally from The Lost Seed in 2008 and I don't think they sold them last season.
They made the prettiest mashed potatoes. Very pink. When I lived on a suburban block, my potato growing was limited as it was difficult to rotate crops due to lack of space and other warm weather crops were grown in preference.
We have grown a modest crop of peanuts too. They are a fun plant to grow and don't take up too much room and would probably be ok in a large pot.They do need a warm summer though.
