    With newspaper I get one entire section, and use garden secateurs to make small cuts across the folded side, spaced quite narrowly. I then tear off thick wads of narrow strips using those cuts as starts. I've found this a very easy way to generate a large amount of shredded material in little time.

    Bumper crop of potatoes

    I never take much notice of those dates they give out, it's really just a guide. The longer you can keep a maincrop going the bigger the potatoes will be.
