Today i bought my seed potatoes, and got three varieties. 'International kidney' which is a second early and the one sold as the 'jersey' potato in shops. 'Red duke of york' a first early which i need to get in the ground ASAP , and finally 'Valor' a late maincrop and a good blight resistance potato.

I also bought some seeds, purple carrots which my daughter wanted, 'tabasco' chilli peppers, rainbow chard, an indoor cucumber, and got some free beetroot seeds also.

The tomatoes have mostly germinated now but none of the chillies have started yet but they sometimes do take a little longer. I will soon sow a second load just to make sure in case they do fail to germinate.
