Borders Organic Gardeners Potato  :spud: Day Sunday 2nd March Border Union Show Ground Kelso.  11am - 3 pm.  Entrance 1, children free. Telephone 01289 388501

Its always a good visit.  We go coz it winds   :stir: my mum and step dad up when they see us there  :furious:  (couldn't find a horn rimmed devil smiley) (they have allotment in the back garden).  And because its always interesting to see how may different varieties of spuds are for sale and talk to people about growing. :)

We went several years ago when the Mayan Gold (phureja type) potatoes were first being trialled.  They cooked some for us to try and we found them delicious.  As soon as they came onto the market we started growing them, and this will be the first year since that we haven't - too wet so too many slugs.  Alan Romans was there too giving advice.
A great and very popular day, with a huge variety of spuds for sale, often singly   :spud:

Do something today that your future self will thank you for - plant a tree

When I lived down south I used to love Potato Day at Ryton Organic Gardens (home of Garden Organic, formerly the Henry Doubleday Research Institute.)  It was at the end of January.

Well if the girls aren't getting busy lambing, we just might combine a trip up to see a pal near Kelso with BH's first Potato Day ;)
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
