Potato Chitting Containers.


Usually I just buy fresh seed potatoes each year. However this time I have my own seed potatoes to plant, having set aside appropriate specimens from the crop of 2014. Another little financial saving. The earlies have been planted already and I would hope that I will be able to start digging the first tops by the beginning of July.

The main crop varieties are presently being chitted in egg boxes and they should be ready for planting in another ten days. I have a friend who is a wholesale purveyor of eggs. I think that I will extract a few egg trays from him. That would enable me to have all of the seed potatoes of a particular variety chitting away on the same receptacle.
