Today I've been out at North Willingham, a village about five miles outside Market Rasen which is itself no metropolis but it counts as a town in these parts as it has a population of almost 4000. We have small towns, small supermarkets in these parts but sometimes there are wayside stalls when someone wants to sell their surplus stuff.
As I was on my way home I saw this box outside a cottage. It is brilliant! Someone has created a slope on the top of an old plastic box and attached a plastic bread tray with a hinge fixing. Inside they have screwed a cash box firmly to one wall and the spuds are in plastic bags ready to be taken.
The potatoes are Marfona which is a good bet for boiling, roasting and baking - a useful all rounder. The sign says "10lbs for £1" which is a bargain. When I got home I weighed and checked them, I had got 11lbs for my £1. Spuds with butter, spuds with cheese, spuds with beans. Yummy!
I still have £16.76 in the kitty.
