    I harvested my container potatoes a month ago. Got 18.5 pounds per 12 plants. 700 g per plant as an average. Pretty good, considering the drought that has been lasting here since spring. We have had 2 proper rains during the whole summer so far, and total percipitation is less than
    100 mm per last three months.
    So no wonder, that potatoes in the ground have smaller harvest per plant - container potatoes were watered, in ground potatoes were not.
    Today I harvested 2 rows of early in ground potatoes, ca 100 potatoes planted per row, the harvest was 120 litres (I haven't weighted this harvest yet, but I guess that it's ca pound per plant.
    Many of my tubers are affected by drought or pests.
