PlanetPotato Number 7: Grown with Love
After a year that none us will forget and which has been tough for so many, it is time to look back, look forward and celebrate the festive period the best we can.
We hear from 'Marilyn Monroe' why she was photographed in a potato sack and discuss our favourite potato Christmas presents.
One of the positives of 2020 has been the building of community spirit in so many places. In one part of Glasgow, Scotland the potato was the catalyst for bringing neighbours together to grow a colourful crop that was then shared in a pop-up chip shop. You can learn more and see why 'An Empty Gunny Bag Cannot' stand at www.aproxima.co.uk
Finally we venture close to the North Pole to hear about Iceland's Christmas potato traditions and hear the Js and Ks of potato variety names from Hanna Lísa Ólafsdóttir.
Wishing you all a happy, peaceful and safe festive period and a more hopeful 2021.
