Abernyte Harvest Festival
Saturday 8th September 2018
See if you can become Abernyte’s champion potato grower. Courtesy of Stephen Hole, we have 100 identical seed potatoes of the ‘Sunrise’ main crop variety. They are ready for planting now, and will be ready to harvest on 8th September 2018 at the Abernyte Harvest Festival. You can plant your potato in any container you wish, use whatever growing medium you want, and keep it wherever you wish to promote good growth. You can even take it on holiday to sunnier climes if you cannot trust your neighbours to look after it for you.
None. Just plant it and let it grow.
Bring your potato in its container along to the Harvest Festival. No need to pre-register. Tip out your container. Prizes for the heaviest shaw, and for the largest single potato. If you do not win you can eat your entry as a consolation.
Collect Your Potato
Residents within the village may find a potato appears on their doorstep. If you have not received one, or wish an extra, call round to Ron and Tricia at Balfour Cottage.
There is a bag of seed potatoes on the bench outside the door. Help yourself.
