Seed Potatoes

As I said the other day, it feels like we should be hibernating.

Sunsets in the middle of the afternoon, sunrises, er, ...um, sometime during the day.

But, it's time to prepare for Springtime. The other day, a heavy box was delivered to our door.

The girls were so excited. Until they opened the box.

In the box there were...
...potatoes. Seed potatoes, ready for planting in Spring.

We were asked to lay them out on a tray and store them in a light, airy place, free of frost.

So the Builder gets to making suitable trays.

Yes, they needed to be sanded. Potatoes are fussy that way.

So we now have a couple of seed trays.

Red Roosters, Red Duke of York and Accords.

We will plant, but we pray that God would give the increase.


  1. cool, i wasn't sure how that worked!

  2. Ooooo..this makes me antsy for spring. We've still a little of winter left to go yet.

  3. Hey, I just came across your blog by doing a bit of blog-surfing, and I'm glad I did! I've added myself as your newest follower, and I hope you'll check out my Christian devotional site as well: www.nocondemnation81.blogspot.com

    Have a blessed day!

    In Christ,

  4. Wow-mine are in cardboard boxes-this looks so much better.

  5. Wow! Those are some beautiful seed trays. Out of curiousity, when will you plant them? We still have months of winter weather left to endure.

  6. Very nice seed trays! I am already mentally planning my garden and can't wait for spring!

  7. Well, we have some way to go too before we can plant them.
    They'll sprout before then, and, all being well we'll plant them early April - once the soil has warmed up some. We don't tend to get heavy frosts here at all, so we may even be able to plant them earlier.
    There aren't as many tatties here as the Builder was expecting, so we're gonna send for more - in the hope we'll be able to get them.
    Welcome, Dakota - what stunning photos you have on your blog.
    ..And welcome Mountain Mama - you too! And Anne. Lovely to 'meet' you all x

  8. I love potatoes. We grow them each year and they are one of the crops that does best here. We are also quite fond of sweet potatoes, but the deer wipe them out. It's so bad that we had to plant things the deer like nearby so we could even harvest a portion of our sweet potatoes. Now I need a root cellar to store some things we grow.
