Monday 1st April 2013 – Need a bun pad!

Just to say this isn’t an April fools joke, just incase you’re wondering. I was up to allotment this morning planting more potatoes “Blue Belle” and the first half of my “King Edwards“. I had my lovely new knee pads on to protect my knees (lovely they are, but not clean anymore). When I sat down on the grass got a wet bottom and realised I also needed a bum pad to protect my delicate behind. Does anyone know where I can get one from? Maybe I should be padded like the Michelin man, then I’d be well protected. Hope you all had a great Chocolate day or Easter sunday to the rest of you. Don’t eat too much in 1 go, but then you can burn it off when gardening.

    Blue belle are our favourite spud, we couldn’t get any of them a seed spuds locally. I was tempted to use ones from the supermarket but they were all to big as a seed potato. We went for Sarpo Mira for maincrop this year as we always get blight in South Somerset..

    We planted all of our spuds on good Friday, a few of the old boy said ” you planted them a bit early this year they will ever grow.” But today their all planting lol 🙂

    • I’ve heard that about planting potatoes on Good Friday. Only did it once though, and then rest of the time from mid March onwards. Not sure where that old wives tale comes from, but Easter changes every year. I got my Blue Belle spuds from Mr Fothergill’s, they may have some left.
