I was surprised to see that - almost forgotten they were there.
Going to add a few more sprouting spuds soon. All sprouting spuds are going to be planted - that my new rule. Big Grin

No list, Sarriss. That might mean I'd have to stick to them. Big Grin
I replant sprouting onions too. Gives you nice green leaves to use like spring onions/chives and, eventually flowers and seeds. They're in my permanent onion bed - which is different to the permanent leek bed and the elephant garlic bed.
Rotation - Pah!!!
