Chitting !

we always Chit our seed potatoes and sometimes I wonder why !  I remember Monty Don did a trail on Gardeners world a few year ago and they found they wasn't much difference in the yield of chitted spuds to un- chitted ones. But I still do it !!

Chitting simply means encouraging the seed potatoes to sprout before planting , usually done in January or February , mine are still chitting waiting for me to get a move on and plant them !.
