First potatoes

I opened up one pot of my Pentland Javelins yesterday. 4 potatoes of fair size for earlies - about 6 ounces. That's after 130 days but it has been unusually cold most of this time. I'll wait at least two weeks before trying another pot. The tops are still growing well. Perhaps I should wait till they start to yellow.

The Sarpo Miras are beginning to flower! That's after just 66 days. Should I take the flowers off before they set seeds? The RHS website states that it makes little difference to crop but nobody says it makes things worse so i'll do it! (But I didn't!)
