We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

Over the weekend we laid out the seed potatoes in trays to chit them. (That means getting them to sprout before they go into the ground - therefore giving them a head start off.) We have got a number of varieties but last year we tried Home Guard and Rooster and were pleased with the result. We normally grow pink fur apple as a salad potato and you can see from the photo above these are chitting as well.
