When I was a child - a long time ago, the Autumn half term holiday was known as "Prato picking week"

Just me and hubby at home but we saved a patch of the garden and some empty pots to grow our own potato`s. There is nothing nicer than seeing all those little spuds coming into sight .There arnt any shop ones that taste like home grown `uns.
