Seed Potatoes!

It seems a bit on the early side, but Suttons have sent
out my seed potatoes. This year I'm growing
'Charlotte', 'Vivaldi' and 'Swift'.

I've popped them 'eyes' up in a box, and put that on the windowsill of the spare bedroom to begin chitting.

Putting them somewhere fairly bright ensures nice firm sprouts, which are less likely to get damaged during planting than long spindly ones, which would develop if the seed tatties were left in the dark.

I haven't decided what to do with them once the chitting process is done. I might plant them in bags...or I might put them in a raised bed at the lottie...decisions, decisions.
