Potatoes North Fife

Potatoes North Fife, a field near my home, one of many growing potatoes this year, some obviously for seed where several varieties are growing in the same plot. Generally this year is turning out to be a wonderfully productive one, good sunshine, enough night time rainfall, who could ask for anything more.

Potato flowers indicate that they're a member of the the deadly nightshade family which as you might know is poisonous, other members are tomatoes and aubergine. Strange that different parts of a plant can nurture or kill.There is a movement to introduce sprouted seeds into salad foods, good but not if parsnip is chosen.
Five a day is good, be wary of the sixth.
