Potato Fair '08


This coming Sunday is Potato Fair/Seedy Sunday in South East London and I am going to be there with bells on. I've dug a big new patch at the back of the yard and plan to double my potato harvest this year. I already anticipate the need to invest in some 'Tater Mitts' (as seen on TV!) which allow one to scrub the skin off a potato in only 8 seconds of actual time!

Haha, you had me with the Tater Mitts until I came to the fine print that says the potatoes have to be blanched first. That does make quite a difference.

Well spotted. They had me fooled. Here, if I can make this link work, is a film on potato peeling which was sent my way by old Farmer Frack @ Hooting Yard.
