NewBoy2 it is now over 4 months since I promised to report back on the potatoe situation. we are stil munching our way through the Roosters and Golden Wonders. A few are getting soft as the weather is very mild but none have gone past using. Had fish and chips to-day Ash Wednesday. As good as the chips I made in october. asto the question how much do you need to sow to have a supply for the winter, well we made it on what we sowed. If I were sowing for myself alone I'd sow 10 to 12 first earlies the same second earlies and 75 to 80 Roosters. That should get you along way. It's nat an easy question you pose and at best it's a good guess. Hope this is of help to you.
