"Chitting" Potatoes

A week ago I put my seed potatoes out to sprout - or "chitted" my spuds - as the pro's say!

Basically seed potatoes eyes need to develop before they can be planted.

In a box on some damp newspaper and in the shade for a couple of days and the purple eyes start to show. They will be ready to plant out this weekend, then I will start the next batch.
