These came through the post yesterday, I had totally forgotten ordering them the other week and when the courier handed them over I said I wonder what this is ...
... he said 'I think they're spuds love'.
Yes they are ... 10 Majestic Main Crop seed potatoes.
I really wanted to buy these as these are the type of potatoes that were grown all over the UK during the war years. They are a good cropper, with high yields of very versatile potatoes ... or so I've been told.
I searched locally for them but then, thanks to a reader I found out they are a Scottish potato, so I went online and just about managed to get them. They had sold out pretty much everywhere I tried, they must be a really popular type, but then one last supplier had a few bags of ten left, so I snapped some up quickly.
And then that reminded me I had not written my spend on the other seed potatoes down in my 'non-food' column at the back of my diary.
So this has now been rectified.
A total spend of £12.96 on forty potatoes ... it will be very interesting to see what I get for my money by the end of the growing season.
