Morning was editing my photos and thought we needed something bright to cheer us all up through the darkest part of the year...
This is one of my plots at the end of June this year.. Dwarf Munstead I think, and younger Hidcote on the left hand (downhill) side as it is taller. All raised from seed by OH

Chatting to another allotmenteer today and we got onto discussing Romano tatties.

I buy my potatoes from the Chesterfield potato day and they haven't sold them for a long time, as they can't provide every variety so I never thought much about it. However the other gardener said that he had tried to buy them in other places and they wern't available.
A quick Google has lots of recipies which mention them but none for sale (Google anything these days and you normally get adverts rather than information)

JBA don't list them not T and M so I thought I would ask on here if anyone knows what or why? I thought they were good potatoes but it must be years since I last grew them.

Managed a few hours out,  Looked a bit of a sight with a black patch covering my eye which will not close and the chill dries it out a bit rapid. That gets painful. So off to the shops for the ingredients for a figgy pudding. Dropped a bag of stuff of at the RSPCA charity shop and noticed a Kenwood chef with all the extras for a tenner and the promise if it did not work to be able to take it back. I have been getting very large hints about how useless the made in china one she has got is with its clunking and banging even with the dough from a small loaf.   Makes a good metronome though  https://www.facebook.com/rob.carr.587/videos/2684971024875046/
