Big ones for big people and small ones for small people :-) , thats what sonu thinks. His dad brought a big bunch of baby potatoes, and to my surprise i could not find one single of it on my veggie rack. Those tiny potatoes were all gone for a big wash in washing machine ;-) ! Thank god , sonu doesn’t know to switch on the m/c yet.
