This weekend me and Mr.Bee visited a local potato day 🙂 Who’d have thought there were so many different varieties of spuds? We were spoilt for choice really! Armed with a list of the potatoes on offer, we walked around with our box ready to fill up. There were herbs, vegetable seeds, fruit trees and bushes, garlic, and summer bulbs on offer. It was great! We even bumped into our friends 🙂
We don’t plan on having too many rows of spuds this year, just enough to get us by. We’ve chosen our favourites – marfona (second early) keeping our fingers crossed they do better this year. We had a problem with stinky, disgusting black leg which wiped most of them out – pretty gutted about that! For our second choice, we wanted to try something different, so we picked rooster (main crop) potatoes too 😀
It was such a well organised event, I cant wait to go back next year! 😀 For now, our little seed potatoes are sat happily in their egg boxes on the kitchen windowsill. Best get the plot ready and get the trenches dug and sprinkle the muck in! 😀
What potatoes are you growing this year?
