Stored Spuds Sprouting

Posted: 20/10/2014 at 08:59

Newboy, I only grow enough for two of us, I don't have space in veg garden so I grow them in sacks I don't have any holes or damage to them.  By far the best producer for me this last season has been Charlotte. I buy my main crop spuds.

I think it's time we were shown the % votes by the general public. each week one decent dancer against a rubbish one in the dance off, didn't used to happen.

Tim only in his 64th year  He must have had a big paper round had him pegged as at least 10yrs older.  

Still got Scott

Love the remedy Clari, Pdoc on Mum duty so you are now our appointed resident medic

Soz not seen your undies ( not a good way to say that   )  dunno if wind blowing in my direction, maybe MrsGarden has seen them flying by. The wind doesn't know which way to blow other than to do a lot of it  We need a smiley with a hat on with a chin strap

Hope all have a restful and damage free evening, off to open a bottle of something white & chilled, lemonade of course !

Rat spotted

Posted: 19/10/2014 at 16:42

I'm in the corner for putting down a rat station. If there is one in evidence they'll be more and probably lots. Mice at the top of the garden fine, live & let live, but not if they are in shed or seen near the garage, don't want freezer wiring nibbled etc.  I'll get my tin hat ready  

Stored Spuds Sprouting

Posted: 19/10/2014 at 16:34

Newboy I grew Pentland Javelin & Vales Emerald 1st earlies, and Charlotte 2nd earlies. All stored in garage in paper sacks cadged the sacks from green grocer as I buy from him what I don't grow.

 1st earlies starting to sprout so eating quickly  Charlotte looking okay. Usually eat all before Christmas. If you've got a lot maybe rub the sprouts off until you get to eat them, but scoff 'em quickly  

Nut that's my way of preparing spuds for veg bakes

Hi all, blowing a right one here !  Got washing on twirly thing earlier and almost dry but well battered ( joke for Panda who had night at chippy) Then base snapped, bit corroded with later inspection and twirly airer took off like a beach brolly and landed on flower bed  plants okay landed where I'd cleared  washing not so good  Yelled OH's name that loud that half the village with same name came to the rescue

MrsGarden soz to hear about your finger, do you think it might be broken? Had a friend who trapped hers and hurt like hell but cos she could bend it she thought not broken, but it was. Hospital only did what Bekkie suggested and taped it to next one. Hugs. Maybe some of Pdoc's pain remedy might help. Deffo not fit for any attendance at carp job

Verdun sad about the chap with cancer, it's a mean bugger when it gets you  My toms & cumbers came out last week. Toms not been brill cos had to grow cumbers & toms together and in my view not compatable, now got replacement GH so can grow seperately next year. Have my cuttings from Agash growing well to overwinter so will have them next year when cold does the garden one  Tried cuttings from Anchusa lodden royalist but they didn't grow  Do you think it's worth digging it up and putting in GH ? I know you said it was a short lived plant but would like more than one year.

 Had intended weeking, in a sheltered place, but there isn't one!  So thought best to move pots to shelter and make barricades with full watering cans. Ornaments put away and winter veg staked.
