February 24th 2013 Chitting Potatoes

24 02 2013

I like to grow a variety of potatoes and I usually buy them from Tuckers in Devon as they have a great range.  This means that I always buy too many and we don’t usually manage to eat all of our crop!  This year we have BF15, Cherie, Charlotte and Pink Fir Apple.  I have also bought Vanessa which is new to me and a first early new red skinned potato.  The rest are salad potatoes that I boil or roast with olive oil and rosemary.  My mouth is watering already and I guess  what you can see here is potential again though it’s food rather than flowers!  And I love the magic of planting one potato and digging up a dozen…IMG_3367 IMG_3369
