Tatie Picking

In North Yorkshire it was traditional for taties to picked in autumn, generally in October. Half-term in October was traditionally known as Tatie Picking Holiday, as children often helped, lured by extra cash and free spuds to take home. It helped me buy my first computer back in 1986.

The video in this post shows how it was done in the 1950's, we are having a Potato Week in October 25th-October 29th with things to do and see for all the family.
