I was always annoyed when tattie picking came around, for some weird reason my Mam wouldn't allow myself & 5 brothers to go to the tattie picking, in her mind she thought we would have been begging for money :(

I remember hop picking holidays as a nipper! Great fun! I also remember fruit picking during the summer holidays too. Made a change from scrumping potatoes and greens! :lol:

That was another bonus RS. The hopfields here are near to orchards so we would sneak off and go scrumping. Kids today do miss a lot that we experienced and enjoyed ;) :lol:

PS. Returning to the topic, we DID have sprouts on boxing day......luuverly! :lol:
