Potato Day

Actually it's more of a Potato Weekend, since it's running over two days - the 12th Hampshire Potato Day. I can't actually get there myself, but a friend is going and is going to get 4 varieties of potato for me, from First Early through to Main Crop. I tried some of the blight-resistant Sarpo varieties last year, but they didn't give many potatoes on my allotment. So I'm going for ordinary varieties and hope the blight doesn't make it to our area this year!
