Down the road we saw four potato trucks driving ahead of us.
As I drove past my passenger said :
“Are there potato trucks? I thought there were just bags.”
I cried as the trucks had no windows and the potatoes could not see out.
Why are we so cruel to our vegetables?
Potato Bag Lesson
Thus followed a fourteen second conversation about the potato industry.
The trucks take them to the big bag place.
The big bag place sends them to the small bag places.
The small bag places find smaller bags.
The people buy smaller bags the small bag place used.
That’s why a million potatoes costs a penny and a potato from the small bag place can be more than a dollar.
An English Blessing
England is the only place where English food is venerated.
Even then – it is only one food – that is blessed.
The honest potato.
There is no religious ceremony around other vegetables in England
There is one food that will not be touched.
An unsung potato.
Before the trucks take the potatoes to the big bag place they are blessed.
As the trucks are loaded,as potatoes are such a holy food, the truck loaders count their blessings.
one,potato,two potato, 3 potato four,
Once all the blessing have been counted, the truck proceeds to the big bag place.
It’s a secret of the potato industry,tighter than a Freemasons handshake.
