Potato Day

We went to Potato Day last Saturday at Ryton Gardens, headquarters of Garden Organic. We came away with many different seed potatoes, some varieties we’ve not grown before. Should be an interesting year then. Shall be putting a page up shortly.
We also went on a tour of the Heritage Seed Library. We enjoyed the talk given by a member of staff and learnt a lot. We also picked up our HSL seed order (dropping it off there too…). Luckily, we got all our first choices as well.
We should visit Ryton again in the growing season. The weather wasn’t too bad, but there wasn’t that much to see. We went there in May and September in 2004! and Pumpkin day in October 2005 (there was an apple tree with blossom!!).
