logo - International Year of the Potato

The year 2008 is the International Year of the Potato and the United Nations is running a potato photograph competition. They don’t specify whether mashed or chipped will be acceptable.

Meanwhile, the village will once again be holding a charity potato growing competition. For £1 you get a seed potato, pot and some compost. At the village fete in July each crop of potatoes will be weighed. Last year, Bill won (under guise of his grandson). Bill wins every “biggest” vegetable prize, including the pumpkin competition.
