Last weekend was our local Potato Day so we went along to see what was on offer. I was't after much really as I ordered my seed potatoes, onion sets and peas through the Allotment Association in November and my order was delivered the allotment about a fortnight ago and are chitting away nicely on to of our wardrobes.
So I thought I'd go along to the Potato Day shop and just pick up a few seed potatoes that I'm thinking of growing next year, I just to try a few first before ordering a bag full next year Unfortunately there wasn't any Yetholm Gypsy or Amorosa but I come away with half a dozen Vanessa (a red first early) and half a dozen Maris Piper (maincrop) seed potatoes I also picked up a small bag of Red Onion sets as well as
a Bulb Garlic (Solent Wight) which kinda brings my to the point of this
Today I got one of my blow-a-way plastic greenhouses out of hibernation
( if you've ever had a plastic greenhouse you know why they get called blow-a-ways).
I've put a fleece cover on first and its plastic cover over
