Potato Days
« on: September 26, 2007, 10:59 »
Can't find the thread, but someone was talking about Potato Days a couple of weeks back.

Got some stuuf from Garden Organic arrive this morning, (along with catalogue that will keep me entertained for hours).

Anyway - thay are having a Potato Day (two of them actually) at Ryton on 2nd & 3rd February 2008. 100 different varieties on sale.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Not what I was thinking of Shaun, I was looking for the post, but your reply is even better. (Damnit).

The nearest londonish one is in south london... Peckham if I remember correctly. It's the third sunday in january and you take a bus from Elephant & Castle tube station.
wistfully hoping to one day be mostly organic gardener in North London.

I go to the one in the Scottish Borders every year....Borders College. Great day out....don't take the family though, as the scrum in the Potato Hall exceeds that of the worst jumble sale I've ever been to.

Try emailing T&M nearer the time, FAO Colin Randel (vegetable product manager), as he was at a local potato day I attended last year, and he really knew his stuff.

Heather S, let us know if you know when the London one is, I'd love to sample some Peckham potatoes.   Bet they won't be as good as the Tottenham ones though.

Incidentally, did you know that 2008 will be the United Nations Year of the Potato????
