There was snow the day before the event, but the weather was good on February 9th 2013, and we had a good Potato Day. If you came, thank you for supporting us. Potato Days do not run without you.
If you missed the day, sorry, you will have to wait until February 8th 2014. We had 102 potato varieties on offer. The price per tuber was 15p, which was cheaper than you could buy in most garden centres. For this we have to thank our suppliers of Scottish seed who have had an awful year to grow and harvest their crops. In fact some of the varieties we would have liked to sell were still in the ground where machinery could not get in and dig them up. If you can get to South East Essex on 23rd February, there is another potato event there for you.
South East Essex Seed Potato Day, Saturday, 23rd February 2013
10.00am - 2.00pm - 47 Fairfax Drive, Southend-on-Sea, SS0 9AG on the corner of Fairfax Drive and Prittlewell Chase. contact 01702 201914 or visit www:seeog.org.uk
Now we are demanding a good growing season. We have quite enough water in the ground thank you!
Potato Day continues to offer you chip tasting, books, garden tools, plant seeds, seed swap, produce for sale, composting help and T&M's Oca (oxalis tubers for food). Our hosts, Stonham Barns, are also building on the event to offer other things of interest to growers such as garden power equipment.
The East Anglia Potato Day
is an annual event that has
been running since 1996.
It is organised and run
entirely by volunteers from
three organic gardening groups:
Norfolk Organic Group
Suffolk Organic Gardeners
Ipswich Organic Gardeners Group.
We try to make available up to
100 varieties of seed potatoes,
which are sold as individual
tubers, so that you can buy as
many or as few as you require.
We also aim to offer as many
organic varieties as possible,
usually about 25%.
**** The next East Anglia Potato Day is Saturday, 9th February 2013 ****
