tiny hands and home grown potatoes

early in the year we set off to dundry nurseries in cheltenham to choose our seed potatoes for the year. It is a ritual, i am not really sure that it is a money saving thing by the time you have bought potato grow bags and watered etc. however the children love it, they really love the whole thing of growing a bucketful of potatoes.

this year we have gone red (can't remember which) white (charlotte) and blue (salad blue),

and with great excitement we tipped out our first bucket and had about 25 yummy charlotte potatoes. the children have scoffed roast chicken and new potatoes, salad nicoise and ham fried eggs and new potatoes with great gusto this week!
