No, not these little Potato chitting dolls 'Sprouting tuber mimics by Karly Perez', Aren't they sweet? Although they are rather sad in this photo as they haven't got hair or clothes yet!
Here's the real thing. This is the Salad Blue.
And these are the Athlete, much more hairy! We were trying to work out whether the hairs are roots or whether they let the potato that it's buried and time to grow properly (Jamie's theory). I couldn't find the definitive answer, but now we reckon they are the beginning of roots.
|It's worth zooming into the photo a bit more if you can...|
honesty; the flowers are so pretty and, of course, the Seed heads are too. My mother always has Lots in her garden (I should have collected some seeds in the Autumn).
In the afternoon we went to the Plot to feed the birds. There were couple of robins and we also saw thrushes and a tiny wren. Brrr, it was cold. Some of our leeks aren't looking that healthy, but they should be tasty - we intend to have some for dinner tomorrow.
In fact, the whole plot looks a real mess, but there's plenty of time yet...
