A Chitting We Go!!

Mummy's seed potatoes

Mummy’s seed potatoes

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Now as you all know We three live in the sunny Mangamahu valley and now it has stopped raining, the weather has improved, mummy’s thoughts are once more turning to spring gardening.  Her garlic is planted and the asparagus is beginning to grow.  So, over the weekend she went into town and brought 2 kgs of seed potatoes.  Once home she put the potatoes into egg containers to go underneath sister’s bed to chitt.

Hopefully, by Christmas family will be feasting on their own home-grown Jersey Bennes.  Love the three bestest maremmas in all the land

    If you put the seed potatoes in oil and heat them, after planting them do they produce french fries?

  2. Wow! We learn a lot of new things on your blog! We have a compost pile in our back yard and ghostwriter dumped a bunch of moldy potatoes in there a couple months ago. To our surprise, they started growing! We’ll give them a little longer and then see what our harvest will be like! Good luck with your potato chitting!

    Wait. What? I never even heard of chitting potatoes. When Mom was a teacher, she planted pieces of a potato in a flower pot for a science experiment. The plant was stringy and ugly, but little baby potatoes grew in the pot! Good luck!

    Love and licks,

  7. Aren’t you the lucky ones to have asparagus! We love, love, love asparagus. And your potato growing technique sounds really intriguing too. We want to keep up with the progress!
