The potato harvest in Iceland has exceeded expectations;farmers say it has never been better. Potatoes were harvested unusually early this year;the first potatoes of the season hit the stores on July 1, one week earlier than usual.

However, there is still much of the season left and farmers don’t want to celebrate too early as the harvest last summer was damaged due to frosty nights in late July, Morgunbladid reports.
