A thread for sharing details of our stashes: what we have, what we need, good hiding places and all sorts of hints and tips to help prepare for shortages in the event of a no deal brexit.

I've had a terrible gardening year for one reason and another,. That's gardening. And life, unfortunately grinHowever, have some tomatoes on tbe go and, with some other seeds I have, reenergising myself with plans for micro greens.

I grew tomatoes on the windowsill here one year. After our holiday I am going to try again. Micro greens will work too.

We dug up our 'crop' of sprouted potatoes we planted earlier in the year. My youngest son was delighted with the results. Pretty sure we're not going to be self sufficient any time soon! grin

But yummy @mum2jakie . And you've learned some stuff. I had a dreadful growing year for non- gardening related reasons. You take your victories

They were all eaten and enjoyed within half an hour of being dug up! Lovely. I've tried replanting the potato plants to see if they will produce any more but they look a bit worse for wear now.

Bet your kids were thrilled. That's useful skills you've taught them and knowledge for life right there.
