Well done Jackie, I bet they tasted better than anything you buy in the shops. Lightly salted with some butter I hope.

Thank You All for your comments, and yes, I was surprised they got that big as my neighbours one's were small.... Mine went in the raised garden my hubby built me, I put a load of topsoil in & dug in lots of manure and watered them a lot + the odd feed too, I think my neighbours failed as he only put 3 in.

Yes! Alanb. I put them into boiling water, no salt as that can make um tough, boiled for 8mins and added butter, Mmmm! Yummy, Slurp, He! He! What a mess we got in LOL , they tasted Awwwsome :-))))
