And as if that wasn't bad enough, I only heard recently that our humble potato is sprayed with some chemical to stop it sprouting.....I don't understand why that isn't explained on the labelling. It makes me even happier that I'm eating potatoes grown in our garden !


My neighbor grows ten acres of potatoes each year to supply to local shops.
I have helped him on occassion sort (grade) and bag these spuds.
He never applied a chemical to stop them sprouting.
The moral of the story:
Buy locally produced potatoes, preferably from Irish farmers too tight to spend money on chemicals.
Long may they prosper. Laughing
