Potato Party

Grow, Harvest and Eat

1st and 2nd class planted potatoes in March. We started by chitting the new potatoes in egg cartons in the classroom. When the potato seeds sprouted we planted them in grow bags outside and watered them regularly.
We were very excited to see how tall the stalks grew and when the flowers appeared we knew it was nearly time to harvest.
We had 2 varieties of First Earlies; Homeguard and Roosters.
Nadine and Naomi washed the potatoes.
Smiles all around! They were delicious with melted butter. Next year we want to add scallions and carrots to our garden salad feast!
