Potato Days

According to http://www.potatoday.org/   the 16th Hampshire Potato Day will be held on Sat 25 & Sun 26 January 2014 between 10am – 3pm.

Testbourne Community Centre, Micheldever Road, Whitchurch RG28 7JF

The 15th Potato Day was open for 2 days and they had 100 potato varieties available as individual tubers, 28 of which were also available as organically grown seed. Even though a difficult year in 2012. In 2013 all were priced at 17p per tuber (7 fro £1). And they had seeds and beans too. I saw them.

I have no connection with  Hampshire Potato Day, just a satisfied customer.

I went last year and it was a great day out. They have other plants and seeds too – not just potatoes.

So that’s what was taking all the strawberries ….

We knew something was. And not birds. None were left half pecked at. They just disappeared. We were worried it was mice or rats. In fact it was a family of voles. (They have, we hope, moved on now). They seem to have nipped the stalk behind the strawberry and taken the whole thing back to their nest – though we did not directly observe this. Does anyone know, are they really that clever?
