Spuds we like at annual veg festival
POTATOES proved popular with punters at an annual festival of the mighty spud at the weekend.
With dozens of varieties of the vegetable on display, staff at Dundry Nurseries saw hundreds of guests come through their doors.
It was part of their annual show at the centre based in Bamfurlong Lane, near Cheltenham, on Saturday and Sunday.
As well as well-known examples such as King Edward and Maris Piper, there were rare types of potatoes from all over the world.

Among the more unusual varieties was Mayan Gold, the nearest thing to what was brought back to these shores by Sir Walter Raleigh 400 years ago.
Altogether, some 30 tons of potato were brought in for the festival.
Steve Mercer, nursery manager, said: "Our annual potato festival is now in its 14th year and it has become extremely popular.
"We get people coming from all over the country.
"There were all kinds of potato including older varieties you wouldn't see anywhere else. It was a great day for any potato enthusiast."
