Druid maincrop potatoe

Post by merryb » 13 Sep 2011, 12:15

While waiting for a shower to stop I started browsing the T&M catlogue and saw they have introduced a new main crop potatoe called Druid

I thought some of you might like to grow it - perhaps in the heart of T&M there is a Druid lurking!

Ahhh the catalogue came yesterday I shall look out for the Druid potato :D
Although in my small plot I tend to go for an early so I can plant the pumpkins there once cropped.
Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68)

From decay comes growth, fungal or otherwise. All stages of death are filled with life and life to be. Creation is made up of ugly beauty that is gorgeous to those who can feel as well as they can see.
