Toolangi Delight

I grow potatoes at all times of the year.  They grow slowly in winter, when water is more plentiful and they grow faster during the longer days though it's necessary to provide supplementary watering.  This is the time of the year when I hope for a good crop.
This year I have planted several different varieties...  Toolangi Delight, Pink Fir, Dutch Cream and Salad Rose.  So far, the Toolangi Delight are producing the most beautiful plants....
The others are growing slowly, but seem more bothered by pests as well.  More leafy growth is needed to feed the tubers, and so I may end up growing more Toolangi Delights in the future.
