How many potatoes can one person eat? Granted, when I ate my first new potato I was in raptures; in fact, I became a bit of a potato bore. Now however, I’m sick of the bloody things. Ditto spinach. I am also sick of being attacked by triffids and other wicked creatures. This weekend I was getting down and dirty with my carrots when I felt three little pricks around my midriff. I now have three itching lumps on my stomach. I feel it’s only a matter of time before a family of spiders bursts out in an Alien stylie.
