We recently watched Alan Titchmarsh harvesting new potatoes in the summer and placing them in an empty biscuit tin and replacing the tin lid and planting them in the allotment until Christmas. Sounds a good idea. Anybody had success with the biscuit tin new potatoes planting method?
I know quite a few readers have veg plots and I thought I would show you how the spuds are doing. The shrub and perennials cuttings are also doing well and you can still see KALE growing in the right hand corner of the olde polytunnel. There's only me who eats it. All I get is pull a face and "me not like" when I mention or bring it into the kitchen. Think I won't bother growing it again.
So what you having with the new potatoes on Christmas day Dave? We have decided to have striploin steak and a all day buffet, "help yourself" menu with dishes full of sprouts and carrots and pigs in blankets, home made sherry trifle, sausage rolls, just general buffet stuff. No Turkey though. I hate left overs. So what will you be eating on Christmas day? Anybody growing new potatoes at the moment? The Brussels are nearly ready too.
