A blog by Green Party Councillor Andrew Cooper about Kirklees Council and our activity to improve the local and global environment (and also anything that I fancy talking about)

Attack of the Mutant Potatoes
Ms Karen Allison with our mutant spuds
Down on the allotment I share with Karen Allison in Primrose Hill it has been harvest time. A bit early but we've had some good spuds and onions. The spuds as you can see are a bit misshapen but I guess they'll taste OK. We also grow beetroot, broccolli, courgettes, leeks, lettuce, parsnips, swedes, turnips. The inconvenient element of all this is so much of the work needs to be done in the run up to the local elections so as you can imagine it has been a bit manic this year. It's our second year of growing and we're looking to expand the plot more next year and do more growing from seeds.
