A Rationell choice

A bag of Epicure first early seed potatoes. Instructions: "After purchase, carefully empty contents into shallow boxes or trays. Egg boxes or apple trays are ideal."

So too are IKEA boxes! We wanted just a few potatoes to try out for the first time but the garden centre only sold them in bags. There were 38 in ours - so, we'll be able to feed all the neighbours if there's a decent crop! Here's hoping the vegetable patch is big enough and ready in time for planting. But as rain has returned and the forecast for next week is not great, it may be a while before it is prepared. It is such a gloomy day today - and not just the weather - as hopes of a Scottish rugby revival receded at the hands of Wales. It wasn't even a decent game, thanks largely to the wet and windy conditions at Murrayfield and a referee who blew for every conceivable infringement. The most striking post match statistic this time was a record number of penalties ever in an international rugby match!
