A journal of my favourite pastimes gardening, farming and sewing.

Potatoes

At Easter we planted out about 15-20 coliban seed potatoes.  These have now been harvested.  What a good investment - my little trolley was full.  We've now sorted them into a hessian bag and its about half full.

We were very lucky to score more seed potatoes, the lovely pink desiree from my cousin.  Hopefully we have as much success with these.

Tomatoes are also starting to ripen now, which means I'll be starting to make a tomato pasta sauce.  I was surprised at how difficult it was to find a recipe that used fresh tomatoes rather than tinned ones.  Kind of defeats the purpose from my point of view.
