Glasgow Potato Day

The Glasgow potato day was fantastic.  I love the idea of being able to buy just a couple of tubers of lots of different varieties to try them out and see what works best for me.

The only variety they didn't have that I want is Epicure but luckily one of my plot neighbours has kindly offered to pick me some up when he visits his supplier.

Here's what I bought...

First Earlies
Lady Christl
Arran Pilot
Red Duke of York

Second Earlies

Main Crop
Orla (early maincrop)
Sarpo Mira

Pink Fir Apple,

Along with these, I have the two varieties that I grew from true potato seed last year, looking forward to see what I get from those.

On the way home from the Potato day we decided to take a detour and had lunch up on the Campsie Fells, it was bliss.

Oh, and I have to just mention the amazing home baking that was on offer today, what a spread.  Well done to all.
