Well the other day I was sitting out enjoying the sun with a cup of tea and I noticed a bird flitting about - always with a worm or something hanging out of its mouth. All day long this bird whizzed from my veggie patch or potato patch and back to a tree near the back window. And then I realised why. A nest and three hungry little beaks to feed. The potato patch must have been a very good restaurant for that little bird family. So I've picked out the big potatoes and once again covered the rest up to hopefully grow some more and am enjoying the sounds of baby birds being fed.

Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Peel and chop the potatoes into bite sized pieces. Cook the potatoes until just soft but still holding shape. Allow to cool in a colander. Dress with mayonnaise, salt, pepper and chopped chives.
