And the winners were…

Now that the OSCARS, the BAFTAS and the IFTAS are done and dusted, it’s time to turn our attention to the 100 Square Metres’ Potato Variety Awards 2013 (OHSMPVAS). The inaugural ceremony took place last night to honour the potato varieties that have been chosen to grow at 100 Square Metres in 2013. The winners are pictured here. Be warned, flash photography was used in this report.

  1. Awesome new header image + Maris Peer will be good. Here is your ‘best potato-based post award’! *Hands Val award* *general applause in background* 🙂

    • Thanks Matt. I don’t have an acceptance speech prepared but I would like to thank ‘the Academy’ and all those who helped in the making of this post. Oh, and my agent 🙂
